announced this Thursday that in early September the city will dress up to
celebrate the beginning of the end
of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
From September 2 to 5, the main streets and promenades will be closed to traffic and will make way for DJs and local artists. The famous
Arcos de Lapa
and other monuments will receive special lighting, the
host a match to deliver the 'Renace Rio' cup and there will be special discounts at the main tourist spots.
It will be the starting gun for the
relaxation of the latest restrictions
in force, very few, since the city has practically recovered its usual rhythm some time ago.
As of September, 50% of the public will be allowed in stadiums, outdoor events and access to discos and closed venues to those who have completed the vaccination schedule.
As of November, the mask will only be mandatory in public transport and health centers.
The new September festivities will open a program that will last all year ('Rio de nuevo') and that will culminate on September 2, 2022 with a new holiday that will remain on the municipal calendar forever, the 'Reunion Day' .

on Copacabana beach,
which before the pandemic used to bring together almost three million people.
The other macro-event in the city, the
is also underway.
The city council is preparing an agreement with the samba schools so that in case a rebound in the pandemic forces them to be postponed, the
are also held, but on another date.
"Our wish is that Rio is the city of the whole world that celebrates the reunion of life with itself," the mayor decided.
