Carnival HAS TO BE in Rio!

1

I believe that at least once in your life, you’ve heard that Brazil is the country of carnivals. And in that sense, Rio has to be its capital!

Rio became famous all over the world because of those big carnival parades that are being copied in many other Brazilian cities. Lately, people have even created some Brazillian Carnival fetes in Europe, with bands, singers and of course, lots of beautiful men and women!

But there’s more to Rio’s Carnivals than parades! They are nice of course, and it has a special meaning for all of us (as a competition and we try to support our group and cheer for them! After all, the soccer carnival is a national passion!) but real cariocas spend very little time going to those events.

In the past years an old tradition is coming back to life: the street carnival! It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s for everybody! These street groups are all over town. This year there were more than 350 groups! Their sizes tend to vary from 2 million people (for the most popular one) to a couple hundred. But believe me, IT’S ALWAYS GREAT!!

Since you still have almost a year ahead of you; there’s still time for you to plan you carnival holiday here in Rio next year!;)
