This year, the Planetapéia Recreative Cultural Sports Association has completed another important step for the group's main mission in 2019. Locopéia, a locomotive created by Nerino Furlan in 1999 to honor the locomotives that made history in Blumenau, received a touch of magic for Brazilian Day's participation.

After 20 years of success in the streets of Blumenau, the vehicle received a new sound system, with an installed power of 11,500 watts of extreme quality. All the visual details have been redone with colors that resemble the flag of the United States, to honor the hosts of the party. Other details like the upholstery, the metal grooves and the vehicle chimney are also terrific. Surely Locopéia will stamp great memories in the history of Brazilian Day.
