Dubai: Santa Claus visited the Brazil pavilion at Expo 2020 and experienced the feeling of the Amazon rainforest in Dubai. Marking the beginning of Christmas celebrations at the Expo 2020, the Santas visit created cheerful moments of inspiration and goodwill at the pavilion.
Santa expressed his happiness to see the pavilion recreating the Amazon basin occupying half of its area from the entrance to provide visitors the opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience.
Santa also experienced the way of life of the Brazilian delta island ‘Marajo’ in the state of Pará, recreated at the pavilion. He sipped a special Amazon rainforest smoothie, sitting in a designed chair by Guilherme Wentzmade made of straw from the Amazon Forest.
Commenting on this, Elias Martins Filho, Commissioner-General for Brazil pavilion at the Expo 2020, said, “We are extremely happy to host Santa at the pavilion. This brought back a more traditional Santa experience this year for our visitors. Santa provided an opportunity for the children to have “a lot of safe fun and entertainment.”
“The visit of Santa kept the festive spirits high around the Christmas time. Spreading joy and holiday cheer this festive season, Santa met children and people from various parts of the world,” said Raphael Nascimento, Pavilion Director for Brazil Expo 2020 Dubai.
The Brazil pavilion is spread over 4,000 square meters in the Sustainability District of Expo 2020.
