The scheduled events include premiere of the Christmas illuminations of the Ponte Estaiada (Cable-Stayed Bridge) and the main streets; Ibirapuera tree will be lit on Sunday (December 6th).

Starting today (December 4th), São Paulo will receive decorations on the main sights of the city to get into the Christmas mood. Among the highlights is the the Ponte Estaiada on the south region, which at night turns into a huge 'pine tree', up to a hundred meters high. The effect will be obtained by 35 thousand points of light. Tomorrow (December 5th), several routes will receive decoration. The Radial Leste will receive 1.5 thousand bright comets.

On Sunday (December 6th), the Ibirapuera's Christmas Tree will be lit, at 7pm. Reaching 75 meters, the structure is five meters higher than last year. There will be 15 minutes of fireworks on the event and a popular choir that will count with everyone present at that moment. The main goal is to enter the Guinness Book as the world's largest.

Also on Sunday, 38 poles on the Avenida Paulista will be lit helped by an allusive decoration party.

Tomorrow (Saturday), night rides will be set by buses driving tourists to the main attractions. Tickets can be purchased at the Tourist Information Center, on Avenida São João, 473.
