Christmas decorations in São Paulo
Thousands of tourists come to see the Christmas decorations in Avenida Paulista – our Oxford Street equivalent at this time of the year. The most impressive decorations are funded by banks, notably Bradesco, Itaú and Santander.
The mayor’s office also contributed, with a massive bridge with animated characters and music halfway through Paulista which was open to the public. That same bridge will be the main stage for the New Year’s concerts in the avenue. The concerts are also immensely popular – more than two million people are expected to attend this year.
Clockwise from top (l-r): the office of Itaú Personalité (Itaú’s premium service); the bridge put up by the SP mayor’s office; the Conjunto Nacional gallery decorations made out of recycled materials; Santander bank; Bradesco bank at night with crowds taking pictures, the Nativity of the Santa Catarina hospital.
