New Year’s Eve celebrations are major events in Brazil. In cities by the coast, such as Recife, Fortaleza, and Rio de Janeiro, thousands and thousands of people welcome the new year at the beach, where there are concerts and fireworks to celebrate the new year.
The New Year’s Eve party is called Reveillon in Brazil.
Rio de Janeiro has one of the most famous parties in the world, on the beach, with visitors from all over the world, many concerts, and a grand spectacle of fireworks.
After midnight, it is common for younger people to leave the family parties and go clubbing. The parties often end around at 6, 7 or 8 am. I miss those days 🙂
