Story Text: Paris welcomed the new year with a fireworks show over the Arc de Triomphe on Wednesday (January 1), with tens of thousands of spectators on the famous Champs Elysees.
Images of Paris icons such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre pyramid were projected onto the 18th century monument, before the crowd counted down to 2020.
The theme of this year's light and sound show, the sixth consecutive one to be organised by the city hall, celebrated Paris as a musical capital, with images of instruments blanketing the Arc de Triomphe.
