Rio de Janeiro Carnival
Many assume that the Samba Parade is one massive and chaotic street party but this is an incorrect interpretation. Planning of the individual Samba School displays begins months in advance of the Carnival date when first the theme is chosen. They then decide on which Samba song to use via a competition, in the meantime, the designer creates the costumes and floats to match their chosen theme. The main parade is a mix of colourful costumes and floats, amazing songs and a stunning samba vibe - something you definitely don't want to miss!
