The Rio Carnival is the biggest carnival in the world, welcoming over 2 million
people a day to the streets of Rio de Janeiro. Entire samba schools are formed to compete with other locals in the various events. The samba schools work to build fantastic floats, costumes, and themes to represent their teams throughout the carnival.

Five minutes walk from the flat and you are in the Sambodrome, the Samba Parade.
Or, five minutes in the opposite direction and you are in one of the main Streets in Lapa, the bohemian district.

The Brazilian Carnaval is the largest cultural event on the planet celebrated every year by natives and visitors across cities and streets in Brazil. This event is formed by 12 Samba Schools containing an average of 4k performers each and several mechanic floats; these groups are essentially social clubs representing a particular neighborhood. Each school is strictly allowed 80mins to perform through the open-air Sambadrome (a mile long street with concrete seating areas on each side designed to host the parade). Schools are strictly graded on performance time, costumes, music originality and overall theme. Visitors can purchase costumes from one of the samba schools to participate in the parade. Besides, over 600 street parties (Blocos de Rua) take place across Rio de Janeiro during the carnival week.

I don’t know what to say about Rio-Carnival.Net. We purchased tickets with them and ordered to be delivered to the hotel. I got an envelope at the Hotel Ibiza after waiting for two hours at lobby to realize the tickets were misplaced. The tickets were supposed to be for Sunday and instead we got Monday tickets. We called and called and could never find anyone. A taxi driver helped us find the place but it was a home in the suburbs with nobody to talk to. We ended up missing the carnival parade because our flights back home were on Monday night. My wife was destroyed to have flown all the way down to Rio, coming back home without watching the parade.

Carnival is simply one of the greatest parties on earth. Celebrating the five days leading up to the Catholic holiday, Ash Wednesday, the samba classes in Rio are televised meeting up to parade, party, and strutt their stuff at the Sambodromo.

Carnaval parade is filled with revelers, floats from numerous samba school which are located in Rio. I have danced samba in the middle of the Carnaval parade with the samba group called Portela in 2002. It was an amazing experience to be in the Carnaval or to watch the parades goes by.
