IPTC INFO
CaptionThe drums dancing and immaculate costumes that fill the Oscar Niemeyer-designed 75 000-seater sambódromo might be the focus of the action but the samba school practices begin months in advance. The first of some 450 official blocos where bands of musicians lead tens of thousands of revellers on a merry dance throughout the city streets set off at the start of February. All of which adds up to an exotic chaotic and wild ride and even though a great many Rio locals give in to the urge to flee the city for the week for the game visitor and carnival veteran alike it doesn’t disappoint. --- --- --- Having surged in popularity in recent years in 2013 a record 492 bloco street band licenses were granted by the city council and this year the mayor’s office has had to reduce that number to try and lessen their often crippling impact on the city. The most traditional bloco Cordão da Bola Preta will attract hundreds of thousands to Centro’s Avenida Rio Branco from 9am on carnival Saturday but much smaller gatherings can shut down main streets in neighbourhoods such as Copacabana and Ipanema for hours on end. The sheer volume of blocos reaches a peak during carnival week and Copacabana hosts 10 official events on carnival Tuesday alone. _________________ Pays to shop and we recommend carnival bookers.com -_________________________ This is one of cmcs most iconic carnaval.com images
