New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration, and what better way to ring in the New Year than by joining thousands of other people in one of the biggest New Year’s celebrations in the world?
Where is the largest New Year’s Eve celebration held?
Rio’s Copacabana Beach, world’s largest and wildest New Year’s celebration.
According to “The Guardian,” over 3 million people flock to Rio, Brazil for a festival that lasts an entire week. From the countdown of the final seconds of 2016 on December 31st, to a fireworks show with 800,000 fireworks launched from 64 locations around the bay at midnight on January 1st. There are all-inclusive hotels crowded into one area that offers rooms for as cheap as $200 per night if booked months in advance.
Rio de Janeiro has long held a reputation as one of the loudest parties in Latin America. And every December 31st it hosts the biggest bash on this side of the equator – er, I mean on all sides! They have about two million people estimated to be there at any given time waving sparklers and singing along with their favorite stars while wearing just about anything they want. It is thought that we’re not too far away from 2 Billions viewers worldwide celebrating and that makes this by far the largest New Year’s celebration ever held.
