Events Prior to the Carnival

Before Carnival even begins, the celebrations start! Throughout the months before Carnival, the Samba Schools prepare for the great parade that will be held in the Sambadrome during the festival. Also, there are street parades that communicate the anticipation and excitement of the upcoming Carnival. These take place in the two weeks before the official revelry begins.
