A New Look at the World in 2018
New Year’s Eve revelers are still pouring into France’s capital for the first time in decades, as they hope to get away from the Paris attacks and the turmoil in Libya.
The Parisian carnival, where revelers danced and jostled for space with their fellow revelers, is also seeing a marked increase in numbers.
The city’s tourist board said on Monday that its annual carnival would be the biggest in years, with more than 6.4 million visitors, up from 5.4.
It was also the first since the 2010 attacks to break the 6 million mark.
The festival has been plagued by security concerns, with police reportedly arresting dozens of revelers last year.
In February, French authorities said a number of security officials had been killed in an attack on a Paris hotel, which was later claimed by ISIS.
In the U.S., the holiday season is expected to be the busiest since the 2008 pandemic.
The number of tourists in France this year has nearly doubled from the same period last year, and the Paris tourism board said that the number of visitors to France from other countries was up by more than half compared to the same time last year to reach almost 9.2 million people.
