In this first article, we will present to you options for Saturday, 13th February. Amongst them, Cordão da Bola preta (7 a.m), "Empolga às 9" (1 p.m) and "Banda de Ipanema" (4 p.m) are some of the most traditional. The great thing is that if you’re up to it you can enjoy all those bands. If you’re not quite the enthusiastic merry-maker and can only cope with one band per day here are the tips between the three selected street bands above: Banda de Ipanema is a great band for those looking for GLS type of fun. Well located in Ipanema, the band is extremely cheerful with lots of drag queens and people in costumes, fun is guaranteed.

The Carnaval Bloco "Empolga às 9" is composed by members of the drum section of one of the most famous local bands called Monobloco. This is the best place to be if you are looking for beautiful people since it’s merry-makers are often people that go to the beach at Posto 9 in Ipanema, known for its beautiful women. For those looking for the essence of old carnavals in Rio, Cordão do Bola preta is the best place to be. It’s band parades at downtown Rio for 90 years with wind instruments and old samba music called “marchas de carnaval.”

This is only the beginning!  Below you can see all the Street bands that will parade around Rio de Janeiro on Saturday the 13th of February.  We added comment “BrazilCarnival.com.br recommended” for the best blocos of the day!
