All is now ready for one of the biggest and most important sertanejo festivals in Brazil. In the city of Americana, located just over 120 km from the state capital, in the CCA Event Park, the entire physical structure is almost finished to receive 350 thousand people in seven days of celebration.This is 32nd edition and promised to be a big show.
Known for being a party that preserves the country culture and tradition, it maintains the presence of families in the area, not only for the concerts and competitions, but for unique activities to the children, such as ‘Fazendinha’, a space where it is possible to know the routine of the field, follow the simulation of management techniques, environmental care tips, and animals such as cows, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, chicks, ponies and more.
To say ‘be very welcome’, Americana brings every day a different pyrotechnic spectacle. A rain of fires will light up the sky, turning the Park of Events into a true show of lights and music.
In the arena, the sporting events promise to take your breath away. More than 500 athletes divided among the modalities cutiano, team penning, three drums and mount in bulls will be in search of the so dreamed buckle.
In this edition, Americana reaffirms its commitment to Hospital de Amor, formerly known as Hospital de Cancer de Barretos, a reference in the treatment and prevention of cancer. The ‘Challenge of the Good’ will happen on the two Saturdays (9 and 16). On every day of activities it is possible to make donations in the identified bags, which will be passed by volunteers throughout the whole area. In the arena, two competitors, also volunteers, will face the ‘challenge’ of trying the eight seconds on an undefeated animal. Last year, 2004 world champion Mike Lee, owner of more than 500 stops by the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), faced the bull ‘Promoter’, son of the legendary ‘Lawyer’, both of Paulo Emilio’s squad. The result? More than R $ 500 thousand collected. “The Challenge of the Good is extremely important to the Hospital of Love. Currently, our institution faces a deficit of more than 20 million reais per month. All help is very welcome. We thank everyone who is directly connected to the beautiful American Pawn Party. Thanks to all the pedestrians, the owners of the animals and the tireless volunteers who dedicate their time to what we also believe: to overcome cancer through a work done with love. For this reason, we once again count on the entire population of Americana and region to contribute to this action and help us continue to save lives, “says the president of Hospital de Amor, Henrique Prata.
