When Christmas is just around the corner, we can see the lights brightening up the Parisian streets. Among the most expected ones, we have the Champs-Elysées Christmas lights, known in the whole world and making this street the most beautiful one in the world.
The Champs-Elysées lights 2019 have been unveiled this Sunday November 24, 2019. Yes, it's not like it's everyday and the launch is planned on a Sunday and even on a Sunday during which the Champs-Elysées will be car-free. The avenue was crowded this Sunday and gathered all around the podium for the unveiling with the Arc de Triomphe in the background!
This year's sponsor is French actress Ludivine Sagnier who lighted up the Champs-Elysées..
This year - and like last year - the lights will be red. Company Blachère is committed to an eco-friendly approach and the lights will be used for three to five seasons.
