Carnaval is perhaps the largest event in Rio, with venues scattered around town. The highlight is the spectacular samba school parade, a rich and colorful exhibition of 14 groups each day along the street, called Samb mo, with seating for the 70,000 locals and foreigner visitors. Each performing group, dressed in elaborate thematic costumes, sings and dances the samba to the sound of drums with the hundreds of enthusiastic participants and beautiful floats. Rio Carnival takes place on Shrove Tuesday week, from the previous Saturday to Ash Wednesday.
It ain't Mardi Gras, and if that's what you are expecting, head to the Big Easy. But if you want to experience Carnaval in a tropical and exciting atmosphere, where the competition to win the big prize is very fierce & taken very seriously, then this is the one. Get your tickets and head to the Sambodramo for a grand surprise. And plan on long hours. Or, better yet, get yourself into one of the Samba Schools and join in the fun. It don't get any better.
