New Year night in Valparaiso. A must for any world-class traveler.
On December 31 the port of Valparaiso, is revolutionized. More than 1 million people come to Valparaiso coast to see one of the most important festivals-street carnival season: The new year at sea.
Arriving midnight sirens ships-ships at anchor in the bay, turn off the lights that adorn and sound their horns. Everybody hugs everyone, the champagne was uncorked and good wishes are said.
Five minutes after the party starts in the sky. A multicolored roar that lasts 30 minutes and covers from Concon north to the port of Valparaiso from the south. More than 20 km points of launching fireworks are interspersed, sometimes, or maintain color synchronization that achieves cheers and increases the excitement of street carnival.
High point is the end in throwing “all grilled meat” and look like a bombardment.
After that the party continues on the streets. welcome the new year has begun.
