The Carnival is an annual festival in Brazil that is celebrated 46 days before Easter. This is a trademark of Brazil and is heavily participated by the locals and heavily attended by an international audience. It has become widely popular that celebrations have become grander and grander by the year. And depending on which part of the country you are visiting to celebrate the Brazilian Carnival, costumes, tradition and even rhythm is differently observed. In the coastal cities, the festivities are more intense and are celebrated day and night. And this is celebrated almost for one whole week.
Among the most popular celebrations happen in Rio de Janeiro, where the block parade is practiced. Over 100 groups participate in this block parade and there are big crowds who gather to witness this. Another place that is visited for the Carnival celebration is in Sao Paolo, where it is observed every Friday and Saturday night.
Balneário Camboriú also celebrates the Carnival. It can be likened to the celebration in Sao Paolo. The street dancing that is present in the celebration in Rio is not the main focus in Camboriu. Instead, the samba schools performing in a main area like the Sao Paolo’s Sambadrome is the highlight of the celebration. Though Cambodia’s Carnival celebration has smaller samba schools, it has the same intensive festivity.
