|RIO DE JANEIRO nike vapormax womens uk , Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- Rio's traditional New Year fireworks show will pay homage to the 2016 Olympic Games to be held in the city, the official Agencia Brasil news agency said Tuesday.
The city has one of the most traditional New Year parties in the world. Every year, millions of people gather in Rio's beaches, most of them in the world-renowned Copacabana Beach, to celebrate the arrival of the new year. Free music concerts are usually held at the main beaches.
This year, a musical on the history of samba will be staged for the first time at Copacabana's party. To mark the beginning of the Olympic year, the countdown to 2016 will be specially designed.
Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes said, "We are sure this moment will start a very special time for our city."
Rio is expected to receive 850 nike air vapormax mens ,000 tourists for the New Year holiday, which, along with Carnival, is the most important event for the local tourism sector.

Bride prices, a traditional prerequisite for marriage, are increasingly becoming a miserable burden for families in rural areas across China as it has spiked sharply in recent years. Young men go to cities to work hoping they could improve their family's life, but they often come back to find that what they have earned is insufficient for them to get a wife.
Most parents in China would be happy to find out that their son has found a girl to marry. But Huang nike air vapormax flyknit uk , a mother in her 40s from Central China's Henan Province is unable to relax, despite the good news. When her eldest son came back from Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province for Spring Festival and was introduced to a girl by a relative, she knew that this was just the first step.
Though Huang's family has already offered the girl around 20,000 yuan ($3,072) in gifts, she is still free to go on more blind dates. Traditionally, the only way for Huang to guarantee she'll marry her son is to offer her family a substantial sum of money as a bride price to seal the engagement. But Huang doesn't have that kind of cash to hand.
A typical bride price in Xincai county nike vapormax uk , which has been designated by the central government as an impoverished area, has risen sharply in recent years, from 66,000 yuan around five years ago to more than 100,000 yuan now, greatly outpacing growth in local incomes. As on average each family makes just a few thousand yuan every year from farming, it can take a family many years to save up enough money for a bride price.
"The girl looks nice, so I guess the price will not be low nike air max 2018 uk ," Huang said. "Though it will be hard, we will try every means to get the money, as long as she agrees to marry."
"Every means" will entail borrowing money, yet again. A mother of two sons, Huang and her husband make a living by collecting recyclable materials in Guangzhou. To help her eldest son find a wife, they spent all their savings and borrowed money from relatives to buy an apartment in town two years ago.
Now that the apartment attracted a girl, it's time for them to worry about cash for her bride price and a decent wedding.
Not a penny left
Many rural parents across China share Huang's anxiety. Finding a wife for their son could cost them all their savings and drive them into debt. It's long been the case that bride prices and other pre-marital expenses like buying a car and house are increasingly becoming a crushing burden for families with sons.
A video that went viral online recently revealed that in Dangshan county, Anhui Province adidas ultra boost uncaged uk , a bridegroom-to-be needs to offer his fiancée 10,000 5-yuan notes, 1,000 100-yuan notes and a bunch of 50-yuan notes in addition to his family's other expenses.
Li Hong (pseudonym) from Xincai county is desperate to see his son get married. The construction worker spent all of his savings to build a two-storey house last year, a basic requirement for getting a wife in the county. After spending more than 200,000 yuan on the house, half of which was borrowed, he doesn't have a penny left to decorate it.
During Spring Festival he sent his son on blind dates adidas nmd cs2 primeknit black , but is pessimistic about the boy's chances. "Even if a girl agrees, I've no idea where to get the 100,000 yuan bride price,"Li Hong said, adding that he still hasn't repaid his debts.
Xu, a 66-year-old local in Xincai county, said that "getting a daughter-in-law could leave a family broke."
A farmer, Xu used to work in the county seat and knows a lot of people in the county adidas nmd r2 uk , so sometimes he serves as a matchmaker. According to him, people living in the town don't care much about bride prices, but countryside people still attach great value to them.
A prerequisite for marriage, the bride price, a tradition that can be traced back to the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-711BC), remains a common custom in most rural areas across China.
"You cannot get a wife without spending more than 500,000 yuan," Xu told the Global Times.
As Xu explains adidas nmd city sock uk , a family with a son must have a house, built in the countryside or bought in the town. After that, there is the matter of the bride price and the "three gold objects" - gold rings, a gold necklace and gold earrings - and a multitude of other pricey necessities.
"Most need to borrow to get a wife," Xu said, "if an ordinary family has two or more sons, without even asking you know that they must be heavily in debt."
To Li Hongxiang, an expert in marriage law adidas nmd r1 uk , it is definitely "abnormal." He added that the bride price and cost of marriage are now out of proportion with rural people's incomes."
Bride prices used to be regarded as a manifestation of mercenary marriage and China's Marriage Law clearly prohibits "using marriage to demand money." But in recent years, these have grown sky-high in many rural parts of the country, including Gansu, .
