Brazilians know how to party and Rio's New Year (
) celebrations are ranked among the world's biggest
extravaganzas. This jovial city hosts musical shows in several
districts to bring in the New Year, and on Copacabana Beach a crowd
of over two million people is expected. Partygoers dress in white
to bid farewell to the year that is ending and celebrate the
arrival of the next. A fabulous display of fireworks illuminates
the sky at midnight, amid much festivity, dancing and happiness.
