It’s already time to set up Champs-Elysées Christmas lights, this Thursday November 22, 2018 for a launch scheduled at 6 p.m.
The installations already go strong since September. Everything has to be ready for the big launch of the Champs-Elysées lights, called Flamboyance, on Thursday November 22, 2018, planned with Paris Mayor, kids from the Les Petits Princes charity and a sponsor, Karl Lagerfeld for this new edition.
As every year, the most beautiful avenue will be light up every evening thanks to the Blachère company which came up with a rain of shooting stars on the avenue 400 trees, offering an incredible show, marking the avenue perspective thanks to luminous and lightened up white lines.
These red installations are to be admired all along the avenue, road and pedestrian sides, every day from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., and they won’t use this much energy (11.000 kw/h). Note that the Champs-Elysées will be lighted up all night long on December 24 and 31, 2018.
This year, Christmas market lovers, the Champs-Elysées will have no market this year, you'll have to go to the Jardin des Tuileries.
From 22 November 2018 to 8 January 2019
