SAMBODROME CARNIVAL 2009 RIO DE JANEIRO

So what really goes on at Sambodromo during the four days of Carnival?

It’s a competition between the “Escolas de Samba” of Rio de Janeiro to see who is the champion of the year.

The Escolas are divided into 6 categories. In each category you will find 12 Escolas (Samba Schools). The Escolas of the “Grupo Especial” and the “Grupo A” are the ones that actually parade in the 4 days of Carnival at Sambodromo (Group A, the first two days, and the Special Gruop in the last two days), because they are considered to be the finest.

There are a group of judges that analize the Escolas in more than 40 aspects to decide who gets the glory and who gets thrown out of the Special Group, so the competition is intense.

You can actually parade at the 4 days of Carnival with a costume. There are a number of companies that will arrange that for you. You can also contact the Escolas the Samba yourself.
