Carnival in america

  1. 1. The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is a world famous festival held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with two million people for day on the streets. The first festivals of Rio date back to 1723.
  2. 2. The typical Rio carnival parade is filled with revelers, floats and adornments from numerous samba schools which are located in Rio. A samba school is composed of a collaboration of local neighbours that want to attend carnival together. These people have choreographed dances in fancy costumes that usually tell a short story. As the parade is taking place in the Sambadrome and the balls are being held in the Copacabana Palace and beach, many carnival participants are at other locations. Street festivals are very common during carnival and are highly populated by the locals. Elegance and extravagance are usually left behind, but music and dancing are still extremely common. Anyone is allowed to participate in the street festivals.
  3. 3. Bandas and blocos are very familiar with the street carnival especially because it takes nothing to join in on the fun except to jump in. One of the most well known bandas of Rio is Banda de Ipanema. Banda de Ipanema was first created in 1965 and is known as Rio’s most irreverent street band. The format of the band was inspired by the Philarmonica Embocadura, a Carnival street band in the city of Uba, in the neighboring state of Minas Gerais. Designer Ferdy Carneiro rented a bus in 1959 to take some of his Carioca friends to spend Carnival in his hometown. The event was headed by the presidents of the band, dressed in white suits and hats while pretending to play musical instruments.
  4. 4. Incorporated into every aspect of the Rio carnival are dancing and music. The most famous dance is carnival samba, a Brazilian dance with African influences. The samba remains a popular dance not only in carnival but in the ghettos outside of the main cities.
  5. 5. Street parades, blocos and bandas take place throughout the city of Rio during Carnival. There can be more than 300 bandas taking place at any given point in time. While the biggest street party takes place right outside the Sambadrome, the largest organized street dance is typically found on Cinelândia Square in Rio’s Centro. When the Sambadrome was built in 1984, it had the side-effect of taking street parades from the downtown area to a specific, ticketed performance area. In 1984 the government decided to give Rio Carnival its new home in the Sambadrome. Today, some of the most famous events of Rio Carnival are ticketed events. Carnival ticket prices can vary from US$55 to US$3000,Tickets can be bought in advance through international brokers, or through local travel agents in Rio de Janeiro.
  6. 6. The New Orleans Mardi  Gras also known  as Mardi Gras is the  annual celebration of  Carnival in  New Orleans, Louisiana  in the United States. The season of the New  Orleans Mardi  Gras, begins after the  Epiphany. It is a season  of parades, balls, and  receptions.
  7. 7. The celebrations are concentrated in two weeks before Mardi Gras. Usually there is a bigparade every day; in many days are held several great saves. The biggest parades take place the last five days of the season. In the final week of Carnival, many events large and small, occur throughout New Orleans and surrounding communities. The big parades take place in areas Uptown and Mid-City and follow a route along St.Charles Avenue and Canal Street, upstream of the French Quarter. The parade routes Uptown and Mid-City are normally reserved for families and individuals of all ages who want to just enjoy the party.
  8. 8. The parades in New Orleans are organized by Carnival krewe. Those who walk in procession on the crowd throw strips of colored paper, confetti, facsimile of one dollar coins in wooden or plastic embossed with the logo of the krewe and small inexpensive toys. The main krewe follow, every year, the same timetable for the parade along the same path. Exposed parts of the body, in an attempt to capture more confetti, is not frowned upon by the police department and may give rise to a fine or arrest.
  9. 9. The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold. Are said to have been chosen by Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovitch Romanoff of Russia during a visit to NewOrleans in 1872. purple indicates justice, green faith and gold power.
