"Mingle" with the crowd

Spontaneous, you explore

The famous parades happen in a place called Sambadrome (sambódromo in Portuguese) and last three days. The Sambadrome is a wide avenue with stadium seats placed on each of its sidewalks for the parade of the best samba schools in Rio de Janeiro. The parades begin at night and go until dawn. Each school has one hour into the Parade and must impress the judges. Because of that, each year is more exuberant than the last. Visitors watch from the grandstands or cabins, all with a good view of the parade.

The samba schools are like football teams, they train all year long and since it is a competition, they want to win. Each samba school has its time for the Parade and each year they have a different theme and music (called enredo). Each one has several dancers (sambistas), a king and a queen. It is a spectacle of color and music. Most who come here want to return.

Carnival in Rio

During the days of Carnival, the country stops doing everything just to dance and enjoy life. It all starts on Friday and ends on Wednesday (Ash Wednesday). In most Brazilian cities, it is easy to find parties and music all day and night. While Carnival is celebrated everywhere in Brazil with a local flavor, the experience in Rio is still unparalleled. The music and energy of Carnival in Rio are contagious.
