Hello! Actually, the BIG PARTY in Rio on New Year's Eve takes place right on the beach in Copacabana! The entire city goes to Copacabana Beach dressed in white and light blue (colors of the Goddess of the Sea - Iamanja'". White roses are tossed into the ocean as a gift to the goddess. At midnight there is a fabulous "fire display" that cascades down the sides of the Copacabana Meridien Hotel and a bigger fireworks display over the ocean. The party continues until dawn.
