2015 Nouvel An Paris, Champs Elysées, Arc de Triomphe

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people gather on Paris’s Champs-Elysées to celebrate the “Réveillon,” as the French call December 31.

The light-and-sound show at the Arc de Triomphe will start at 11:50pm and be cut to ten minutes, as opposed to last year’s 20. The main objective is to avoid large crowds gathering for too long. Large screens will transmit the spectacle, and while the Champs-Elysées will be closed to car traffic as usual, circulation will be restored sooner than in previous years.
