The second Charitable New Year’s Eve Highlight is Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This bash has set records for the highest number of people to attend a NYE party (over four million) and it’s still going strong.
If you’re looking for the ultimate beach party this New Year’s, look no further. Spending your last moments of this year and the first moments of the next partying in Rio is sure to be amazing. Look forward to a night of dancing, musical performances and the takeoff of fireworks right on the beach. Don’t forget your party attire: wearing white, red, green and yellow (the colors of Brazil’s flag) is supposed to bring you renewal, good health, money and passion in the New Year.
This New Year’s party also has philanthropy in mind. If you choose to stay at the beach-front Sofitel resort where private parties and firework views await you, you will also be helping others. In November, Sofitel announced its fundraising campaign to help rebuild the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.
WHEN: Tuesday, December 31, 2013. The fireworks begin at midnight.
WHERE: The best place to see the fireworks is right on the beach, but you’ll have to get there early if you want a space! Barges off the shore will shoot off the fireworks.
TICKETS: The fireworks show is free, but you’ll want to check out the many parties, balls, festivals, and bar celebrations before and after the event. Visit Rio’s official website to learn more about the festivities.
