Residents of Brazil's biggest city, Sao Paulo, celebrated the arrival of the first Chinese Immigration Day on August 12 in one of the Latin American nation's main parks, Parque Aclimacao.


Both ethnic Chinese people and Brazilian officials participated in the activity, which featured traditional Chinese art and performances.


Fausto Pinato, a federal deputy and head of the Brazil-China Parliamentary Front, delivered a speech on the day.


According to records released by the Brazilian authorities, the first Chinese immigrants arrived in Brazil on August 15, 1900.


In memory of the significant event, Brazilian President Michel Temer in July spearheaded an initiative to celebrate the date as Chinese Immigration Day.
