After recovering from the partying and late-night antics from celebrating the new year, why not relax and spend New Year’s day at the Parque de la Reserva for a magnificent water fountain music show.

The first day of 2009 will be honored with a special presentation of the 13 wondrous water fountains present at the Parque de la Reserva, called the Magical Water Tour.

The water fountain show is said to bring many city people and tourists to the area. It has become a major attraction in Lima with its colorful presentation and music. It was also recognized by the Guinness Records as the public park with the largest fountain complex in the world.

Along with the special Magical Water Tour presentation, the park is also expected to receive its fourth million visitor according to Andina news agency. The visitor is expected to arrive at the park between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to be honored with a glass trophy, a diploma, free tickets, souvenirs and ballons.

Thousands of city people are expected to attend the show on January 1.

During regular business hours, the park charges S/. 2.00 per person and S/. 1.00 per child during the day. Night time rates rise to S/. 4.00 per person.
