The celebrations of 130 years of Avenida Paulista begin this Saturday (4), and extend until the following weekend. The most famous street in São Paulo was inaugurated on December 8, 1891 and since then it has become a postcard of the capital of São Paulo. Now, a series of activities are being prepared to celebrate the date.

The Associação Paulista Viva (APV) is organizing, together with the private sector, the anniversary program, which will include a choir presentation, a parade of old cars, a photographic exhibition of the road and even an urban revitalization action, among other things. The Municipal Department of Culture will also have an agenda of celebrations.

On Saturday (4), in the afternoon, there will be a parade of old cars and buses, which will help to tell a little of the history of the avenue, the first in the city to receive asphalt. The event is surrounded by great expectations because this type of presentation of vehicles from decades ago usually takes place in interior cities and at specific times. Now, they will be together on the famous São Paulo avenue on a round trip along its entire length.

The next day, Sunday, there will be a bike ride and a walk, as well as a partnership with the Health Department to check people’s pressure, take an HIV test and ask questions about vaccination. The highlight will be a symbolic hug on the avenue, scheduled for midday. “At the time that the Cásper Líbero Foundation’s siren sounds, people who are in Paulista will be invited to make a great chain of hands, in an initiative that has the potential to enter the Guinness Book as the biggest hug in history on a public road” , explains Lívio Giosa, president of APV.

On the other weekend, part of the program is repeated, but there will be a special inclusion: the Architectural Tour. “This tour will be done in partnership with the Instituto dos Arquitetos do Brasil to present the history, design and main attributes of iconic buildings on Avenida Paulista such as Instituto Moreira Salles, Conjunto Nacional, Fiesp, Masp, Sesc, São Luis Building , Casa das Rosas, Japan House and Edifício Nações Unidas and the new Cidade Matarazzo development”, explains APV.

Also on Saturday (11), there will be the opening of the photographic exhibition at Casa de Cultura Odisseia with the project RESPIRA SP, which will have the theme of Paulista. About 40 photographers, amateurs or professionals, were invited to record points of the famous avenue. The exhibition will be open to the public until January 10th. And on Sunday (12), one of the highlights will be a special agenda of the Municipal Department of Culture, with several attractions. According to the agency, the schedule is not yet closed and will be released soon.
