Despite Carnival being celebrated in cities and towns across Brazil and other Catholic countries, Rio de Janeiro is considered the Carnival capital of the world. Rio Carnival is not only the biggest Carnival in the world, but also a benchmark against which all others are compared. Carnival is one of the most interesting artistic events on the planet.
Almost everyone has heard of the Carioca Carnival. In addition to receiving tourists from all Brazilian states, Rio also receives thousands of foreign visitors, totaling around 500,000 a year.
Every neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro has its favorite street carnival block. There are more than 300 of them in Rio today, and every year that number increases. Each block has its place or street for its parade and the larger blocks usually close the streets to traffic. They usually start their parades in January and these parades last until the end of Carnival. Since the beginning of the year, groups of people dancing samba in the streets of Rio on weekends and during Carnival have been a common sight.
Often, the people who organize the parade of the block compose the music for the parade itself.
The carnival blocks are composed of a band, mainly of percussion and wind. They parade along a predetermined route or stay at the same spot, but they are always accompanied by hordes of enthusiastic revelers in costume, in bathing suits, plain clothes, and even drag queens.
