Carnival in Rio 5 - 8 February 2005: Are you ready for the big party?


Share a great experience with other party people from around the world. Nothing is like being part of the pulsating carnival in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

Feel the Samba beet from thousand of drums, enjoy all the beautiful decorations, colourful costumes and dance the nights away.

During the Carnival the city will be turned upside down. On the parade route in front of Copacabana beach, dancers on floats in feathered costumes and sequined bikinis are swaying their hips to the drum beat, and fans are cheering them from the sidewalks.




The Carnival is a four day event that changes dates every year. It begins forty days before the Catholic holiday, Lent. The celebrations start Friday, prior to Ash Wednesday up until the following Tuesday. Ash Wednesday is a day used for recovering from the previous sleepless nights.


Be aware of that Carnival is the peak holiday season in Brazil. Offices and businesses close during the festivities. Since Brazilians take time off and travel, you have to plan your trip well in advance. Remember, you are competing for a hotel room, not only with tourists from all over the world, but also with Brazilians.
