The fireworks are set from the boats safely anchored away from the beach. White is the lucky color to wear and a bottle of your favorite champagne completes this joyous occasion. The giant Ferris Wheel in Copacabana is the center of the countdown. The party is spread from the Copacabana beach all the way to Ipanema.
