Rio Carnival Samba Parade Tickets

Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is one of the most famous festivals of Brazil and is being held since the 17th century. It takes place 40 days before the religious holidays of Easter and over 1 million people flock to the region to be a part of it every year.

This year the festival has once again a lot in store for the fun craving people from around the world, who have started buying their 2013 Rio Carnival Samba Parade tickets.

The history of Rio Carnival dates back to the 17th century when with the arrival of Portuguese immigrants, it became more of a street event. The revelers pelted with water and mud redefined the definition of joy with this festival. By the 1800s these street fights eventually transformed into elaborate parades and happened to be a major highlight of the event. It grew in popularity with time and even royalty liked to dress up in proper costumes to march down the streets of Rio and participate in the parade. Soon this led to the comeback of the masquerade balls and once again people started dancing to the popular polka and waltz music. With passing time, these parades got more organized and were led by groups of people formally dressed up in costumes. By now, this event has earned a global importance and is celebrated in several villages and town across Brazil and other Catholic countries. Despite of this, Rio remains as the Carnival capitol of the world for hosting the largest festival that is now benchmarked by the others being conducted globally.

Spectators can expect 2013 Rio Carnival Samba Parade to be filled with Samba music and Samba Dancing. Tracking down its history, it is revealed that this style was not a part of the Carnival until the 19th century when the African slaves brought their own culture of music, singing and dancing to Brazil. Slavery was soon eradicated from the region and the African style of joy, specifically singing and dancing was taught in schools. The same practice is still continued and there are a number of schools that teach Samba music in the region.

Rio Carnival has a new theme every year that is followed by the musicians for composing a specific tune and choreographers to direct the routines of the parade. Likewise, architectural designers have the responsibility to design floats that go with it and fashion designers make special costumes for the visitors. Since there are different Samba schools that participate in the festival, the best parade is judged by a panel of decision makers who evaluate the parades on things like coordination and costume design among others and the one with the highest score wins the competition. 2013 Rio Carnival Samba Parade plans to follow the same pattern this year.

Fun at the Carnival is not just limited to the parade but stretches out to ballroom dancing and street parties as well. The most elegant ball is Copacabana Palace which is home to wealthy and famous people from around the world. Apart from it, there are others as well such as Rio Scala that is meant for people belonging to all classes. 2013 Rio Carnival Samba Parade fills really fast and if you wish to be a part of it, this is the best time to secure your 2013 Rio Carnival Samba Parade tickets.
