Start shimmying and shaking, because the Rio Carnival is one big party not to be missed! Thought to have originated in the 1700s as a festival before the sombre mood of Lent, today’s carnival now focuses on an annual samba competition.
The samba parade is the finale of the carnival and one of the most glitzy and high energy events on the world calendar. The parade is a highly choreographed, orchestrated show and as such is a ticketed event. Securing tickets to a parade or carnival ball in advance is the best way to avoid disappointment as the carnival is frequented by as many as 500,000 people each year.
