When in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival, don't miss an opportunity to join a "street party", often also
referred to as a "street parade". Although on a much smaller scale than in the Sambadrome, crowds of
costumed people gather together on neighborhood streets - drinking, singing and dancing. The parties
are free events, open to anyone and often even have floats!

Do you like soaking in the culture by attending local parties when traveling?
After staying up all night watching the famous Rio Carnival Parades in the Sambadrome, we had the
opportunity to attend an authentic street party. These parties can be found on many days and all
throughout the city during Carnival season. Although we were VERY tired, we didn't want to miss seeing
how the locals celebrate.
The street party had started in the morning before we arrived, and continued on even after we had left.
There were vendors with food and drinks for sale, games, music, singing and dancing - just all around
lots of family fun.
We were definitely in need of sleep once we returned to our cruise ship, but both events were truly once
in a lifetime experiences!
