What is Carnival?

Carnival is an enormous festival in Rio de Janeiro and takes place right before Lent every year. Durning Carnival, nearly 2 million people a day flood the streets in search of fun and festivities! Typically the parades at Carnival are filled with revelers, floats, and adornments from numerous Samba schools which are located in Rio. The main purpose of Carnival is for these Samba schools to compete with one another. These displays of talent and skill are nothing short of amainzing. One of the most remarkable things about Carnival is how it brings the people together.  During Carnival in 2012, more than 5 million people were in attendace and not a single incident of cripe was reported!


Blocao is the dog friendly parade during Carnival. Dogs and owners fill the streets dressed in wonderful outfits, full of color and style to share in the spot light! Nearly 100,000 dogs dance to the beat of the music and enjoy the festival just as much as the humans!


Now if only we could get a Carnival festival going for the United States!
