ACE President Mark William represented the other partners. “This Christmas, made with different hands and arms, we want to revive the festive spirit and celebrate it with family, so that next year will be even more promising and enlightening.”
The head of Culture, Marcelo Peroni, highlighted the support of the public from the start of the program. “On this first evening, we can already say that this year is a success with the public. Immediately after the choir performances ended, people lined up to visit our traditional nativity scene exhibition at the Museum, which, like the Santa Claus exhibition at the Municipal Pinacoteca, is a must-see. There are hundreds of versions of the good old one, in all sizes and materials,” he commented.
Biologist Joyce Savietto was accompanied by her husband Rodrigo Atique and her children Tom, six, and Sabrina, three. “This is the first time we have come to the Center for Christmas programming. Until last year they were very small, but today we wanted to honor my mother-in-law, the regent Vastí Atique. Singing off stage, in front of a window, is a challenge, but they must be congratulated,” commented the resident of Vila Municipal.
Tom, in addition to eating ice cream, took the opportunity to make requests to Santa Claus. “I liked the lights, I thought it was wonderful,” commented Owen Zilio, a student at Emeb, who wants to win a skateboard and a spaceship, toys and a remote-controlled truck.
Day laborer Sueli Trindade, from the village of Mafalda, also took the opportunity to take the whole family. “I really like coming to the Center. At Christmas I take the opportunity to see the Manor’s nativity scenes. And at Carnival, I like to party with the blocks. It’s all a party,” he commented, accompanied by his daughter Stéphane, his daughter-in-law Rafaela and his grandchildren Miguel and Kauany, five years old.
In addition to the directors and directors of the Town Hall, councilors and traders, the party at the Center had the special presence of Corte da Uva 2024, Miss Pérola Negra and the mascot Vaguinho, from the Mobility and Transport Unit.
