There's no better place in Rio to ring in the New Year than Copacabana beach. Millions of happy revelers, magnificent fireworks displays, live bands and music and a sparkling of Rio magic make for a truly memorable night. Tradition dictates that those who head to Copacabana beach do so wearing all white, and with some three-million people descending on the beach each December 31, the sea of white is a sight to behold. The festivities begin with big-name bands taking to the stage on the beach, and when the clock strikes 12 a seriously impressive fireworks display lights up the skies over the beach. Bring a bottle of your favorite tipple, put on your best white clothes, and prepare to ring in the new year in style.
Rio de Janeiro,
- Holiday Attractions: "he huge crowds mean it's not a good idea to bring young children to the New Year's Celebrations on the beach"
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: Reveillon - or New Year's Eve - is celebrated in grand style on the sands of Copacabana beach
