Rio to Have 4-Day Holiday During WYD

To make life easier for the pilgrims and volunteers during World Youth Day 2013 the Rio City Council has unanimously voted to have a four-day holiday.

The holiday will begin on July 23rd at 4pm in the afternoon. It will continue throughout July 25th and 26th (Thursday and Friday) when Pope Francis will be in Copacabana. It will end at 12 (midday) July 29th, with everyone returning to work in the afternoon. It is hoped that the holiday will make it easier for buses carrying the WYD pilgrims to leave the city.
