Rio De Janeiro: R?veillon
Where: Copacabana Beach
WhatWatch fireworks in the sand with two million other revelers on Copacabana Beach -- this is one of the biggest New Year?s Eve parties in the world and Rio?s second biggest annual party after Carnival. With music ranging from samba to rock, this four-kilometer-long stretch of shoreline on Brazil?s eastern edge is flooded with globetrotters from all corners of the world. Last year at midnight, twenty-four tons of fireworks were sent into the sky from eleven different boats. Make sure to wear white and jump over seven waves ? it?s a good-luck tradition.
