Without the free concerts due to the bans imposed by the government because of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was space for everyone who decided to get together to check out the fireworks display on the coastal strip, which this year lasted 17 minutes.

Eight-inch bombs were used with a range of up to 180 meters in height and 60 meters in opening radius.

With the prohibition of placing tables, awnings, coolers and everything that residents and visitors were used to having at the seaside at New Year, some people who went to the shore of Boa Viagem complained.

“It’s a nice, quiet city. There was a lack of food here on the shore, we are hungry, but we decided to wait anyway to see the fireworks,” said 48-year-old rancher Paulo Nino Costa.

He came from Marabá, Pará, to spend the end-of-the-year break in Recife with his wife, civil engineer Dayane Marcelo da Silva, 28, and son, Argos Gabriel, 6. “I really liked it. I hope the pandemic ends and that we have more freedom. Because this year was complicated”, he said.
