The Paris new year parade was a relatively recent addition to the new year;s day celebrations in Paris, with the first incarnation only taking place on the 1st January 2014, while the 2016 event was of course affected by the terrorist incidents that were responsible for curtailing new year celebrations across Europe.
We're still awaiting for confirmation of the parade for new year 2018, although the date is listed on the official event website as getting underway from 2pm so we're optimistic that the show will go ahead.

If the parade does go ahead there is likely to be TV coverage available via local channels, we'll post any links here.
In the meantime there are some live webcam views that you can check out, with a couple in particular positioned along the parade route:
