Carnival is everywhere... in the streets and squares, bars, clubs and all other venues, taking over the whole city of Rio.
Late afternoon you are pick up at your hotel and transfer to the Sambadrome - or Sambodromo, the "stadium" of samba. It consists of the Parading Avenue (the samba runway) and several independent concrete structures for the spectators (the bleachers) both sides along the Parading Avenue. The Sambodromo was designed by Brazil's world-famous architect, the modernist Oscar Niemeyer. It was built specifically for the Carnival samba Parade. This is where the best samba schools of Brazil compete for the honor of winning this event. Preparations for this top event take place year-round and represent for many participants their purpose in life. Each samba school participates with around 4'000 members at this competition including 200 to 400 drummers. While Carnival takes place in every city in Brazil... the main event certainly is in Rio de Janeiro.
