New Year´s Eve in São Paulo
On one side, 6 shows, 15 minutes of fireworks and 2 million people in the Avenida Paulista. On the other, four stages, 20-minute fireworks show and the expectation of more than two million revelers on Copacabana Beach. The New Year's Eve celebrations in Sao Paulo and Rio are as follows: in similar numbers, different in style.
The most obvious contrast is the picture, but artists who will appear in the two years leading face of the country also deepen the differences. In Sao Paulo, each show will be one style - ranging from the most popular and famous singers to samba school champion shows. Lately, the festival has been also broadcasted on the web. Cameras are placed along the main avenues, such as on top of the Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo (MASP) which has previously displayed all the live shows on the site www.earthcam.com.
All the money for its realization comes from the private sector through sponsorships. The total value of events, however, was not disclosed. The Military Police also are on standby to ensure safety. In São Paulo, between metropolitan police and civil guards, 2,900 are men. The São Paulo City Hall recommends that those who decide to go to the party go underground. The system operates continuously throughout the morning in the main lines, loading and unloading up to 2 hours. After this time, the shipping are only allowed in the stations of Paulista Avenue, with a few exceptions.
Fires: an average of 100,000 fireworks and 7,000 colored pumps makes the fireworks show. Public: last years city expectations were to receive 2 million people - among them, 100 thousand tourists, mostly in the state.
As usual the residents go to spend New Year's Eve on Avenida Paulista. Paulsita Avenue in the days of the week is the country's financial hub, on December 31 turns in a beautiful stage where numerous concerts are presented by famous artists. The 2010-2011 New Year's Eve was full of surprises for the population, location and decor was stunning. For those who have no opportunity to travel to the coast, the Avenida Paulista turns out to be a good option for those who want to play hard. The turn of the year 2010 to 2011 was a homage for each artist who lives in São Paulo, that creative people that, through their work and their attitudes, makes "Sao Paulo, this vast work of art." Great artists brighten up the great party. Everyone could watch the shows from anywhere in the Avenida Paulista, because screens were installed for everyones convenience.
A tip is to arrive early to enjoy the whole program. Information about the event is given by São Paulo officials previously to the Eve. All main points for medical care, with clinics, doctors, nurses and ICU ambulances are regularly placed in strategic points of Avenida Paulista.
