Champs Elysees turns on its magic as Christmas lights sparkle

Paris’s famed avenue, the Champs Elysees, turned on its glitter, as energy-efficient lights illuminated hundreds of trees to welcome the Christmas season. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo was joined by actress Ludivine Sagnier and local officials as they counted down to switch on the lights. Champs Elysees’ 400 trees sparkled with twinkling red little bulbs to the joy of locals and tourists and cars on the busy street that leads up to the Arc de Triomphe on one side, and the Obelisk on Concorde square on the other. A long stretch of the 1.9-kilometre shopping street was closed to vehicles.
