Carnival of Rio De Janeiro

The Carnival is the main popular party of Brazil, being the carnival of the richest and known Rio De Janeiro, attracting thousand of national and foreign tourists. Every year, at the time of Carnival, the city of Rio De Janeiro breathes during five days an enviable air of joy. The Cariocas forget problems and obligations and surrender it the gigantic spectacle of dance and magic. The height of the party is the parade of the special group in the Marquis of Sapuca?, where diverse schools of Samba dispute between itself the Champion heading of the Carnival. Samba, alive colors, esplendidas fancies and pretty women are the main ingredients of this huge dispute. The date of the Carnival varies of year for year in function of Passover. Generally the festan?a occurs enters the end of the February month and the first days of March. The official beginning of the Carnival always is in a Saturday and I finish it to the noon of the following Wednesday, called "Wednesday of Leached ashes". However much person already starts the festejos in the friday. She says herself very in Brazil that the year officially only starts after the Carnival. During most of the decade of ninety, the carnival was reduced to the parades of the schools of samba and to the great balls in closed clubs. The known and traditional "carnival of street", where the people play espontaneamente without paying entered, is abandoned. In the last years, however, this form of festejar is being recouped. The Carnival has diverse possible origins, that in them they take the thousand of years before Christ. The word carnival can have its origin in the Latin expression "carrum novalis", used for the Romans to open its festejos. Or perhaps in the word "carnelevale", that it means "good bye to the meat", in milan?s dialect, a reference to the beginning of the Christian Quaresma. Different of the carnival that existed in the remaining portion of the Europe (and that today it disappeared), the carnival carried through in Portugal was a trick to make dirty the people with all possible one, mainly food. The carnival taken for its colony was this, also Brazil. In the way it XIX they had century started to appear balls, bands and great carnavalescos clubs, that were not only congregated for parties. In the beginning of century XX, they start if to carry through parades with blocks that, to the few, had been earning so great giving origin to the samba schools that until today they exist and they make the Carioca carnival. Established in the quarter of the Est?cio in 1928, Deixa To speak was the first one of them. In 1932 the first parade happened extra-officer and in 1935 the first official parade in Square Eleven of June occurred. Square Eleven was destroyed and the place of the parade was modified diverse times. In 1984, however, it was constructed the Passarela of the Samba, definitive place for the parades. More known with Samb?dromo, the place was projected for Niemeyer Oscar, has extension of 700 meters, 85 a thousand square meters and capacity for 600 a thousand people, divided in some sectors. for more than 30 years, the parade of the schools was carried through of spontaneous form. In 1963 it was only started to vender places for the public. Today the Carioca Carnival is one of the orgulhos greaters of Rio De Janeiro and is responsible for great investments. They are ingressions, advertising, CDs, rights of transmission, etc. The moon for the champion heading of the Carnival very is disputed and involves high costs and great necessity of workmanship hand, generating jobs for the communities of each school of samba. Portela, Willow, Hose, Serrano Empire, Beija-Flor and Empress Leopoldinense are between the schools most traditional, that work the entire year for the Carnival.
