In 1998, the inventor from Blumenau, taking very seriously what in the beginning was just a way to have fun, developed a vehicle that would become the most famous attraction of the Oktoberfest and a symbol of Blumenau: the “Centopéia Clássica”, with the four original riders plus two more guests. The Centopéia grows every year. A new seat is added for every new edition of the Oktoberfest. It has conquered the media and the public’s recognition and was invited to parade in Munich, in the German Oktoberfest in 1998, for over one million and one hundred thousand people. Today it has 17 seats, equipped with sound and microphone to better conduct the party.Beside you can see the sketch made by Nerino in a napkin.
