There are a number of reasons why tourists are attracted to a certain place. One reasons could be that the place may have great historical significance, or that it may host natural wonders that people would like to see. Some examples of these include national parks or museums. On the other hand, there are some places that people go to not because of the sights but because of the events that take place in them. Some of these places include host cities to the World Cup or the Olympics, and cities or places that hold world-famous festivals. An example of such a festival is Rio de Janeiro, which has become known for its festivities.
The Rio Carnival can trace its roots in ancient African and Portuguese traditions, and the fusion of these traditions led to the birth of the carnival, which started in early in the twentieth century. During that time, samba was incorporated in the carnival being the most famous dance in Brazil. To date, the Rio Carnival is usually held four days before Ash Wednesday and it usually lasts for four days up to two weeks. During the carnival, a usual crowd of about one hundred thousand watches the parade of different samba schools, which perform dances that follow a certain theme. The themes that most schools adapt in their performances include nature, politics, music and art.
Each school also prepares a float on which they would perform and these floats and the other preparations for the carnival usually take several months. The parade usually starts at about seven in the morning and can last up to six in the evening, depending on the number of schools that perform each day.
Going to the Rio Carnival in Brazil is an exciting “adventure” that offers a good way to experience the exotic charms of the country through dance and music. It showcases the talent, the rich history, and culture of Brazil, which Brazilians are more than willing to share with the world.
