Besides the World’s well known carnaval parades of Rio, the true essence and the most democratic and coolest way of celebrating the Carnaval is joining the countless street carnaval bands and parties; the so called “blocos”.
Blocos are made of groups of friends of a particular street, neighborhood, or bar, that informally forms a band that parades and play their music around a couple of street blocks. Some of these bands attract no more than a few hundred people and other more traditional and well known attracts up to 1 million party goers!
Only in 2016 there were up to 508 blocos in the whole city and in the 5 days of festivities there were over 4 million people in the streets of Rio.
But amongst so many blocos, there are always many questions: how to find the best one? with nice music? not so crowded? Safe? Where to find toilets? And cool people to party with?
With us all these questions are answered and you don’t need to worry about it!
