Christmas Lights on the Champs-Elysees!

Melanie Lawrence, the heroine of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film “Inglorious Bastards” has triggered the illumination of the Champs-Elysees in Monday, November 22, 2010 accompanied by Bertrand Delanoe, Mayor of Paris. For four years, the lights of the Champs-Elysees have been using next generation LED reducing energy costs by 70%. This year, more than a million LEDs were installed on the “most beautiful avenue in the world.” Once again, the Champs-Elysees host a Christmas market between the Rond-Point and Concord. Culminating in the presence of “Ice Magic”: A tent in which some of the mostbeautiful sites in the world were carved in the ice: a breathtaking spectacle!
