Generally, the Carnival (Carnaval) holiday in Brazil is a time for a free fantasy. Many people moving across the country to take rest or to play carnival in places where there are parades and crowds of people, as Salvador, Recife and Rio de Janeiro. Here in São Paulo the city become empty, despite that we have a carnival parade.
I decide to take a rest here and start using my new Samsung Compact Camera ST550, and the pictures needed to show the work of São Paulo’s carnival after parade.
Why? Because everyone thinks just about the parade and don’t realize what happens after it!
The schools of samba keep all cars with allegory in one place until the result of the carnival competition is announced on the Tuesday afternoon carnival in São Paulo. There is a kind of ceremony where long lines are armed in sambódromo site. Tents are armed position where the representatives of each school, which will annotate the notes as they are being disseminated, making the calculations. The chairman of the league makes the final considerations about the carnival that year, reads the possible loss of points given to each school, and then start reading the notes.
After the result of this competition is announced the best schools of samba parade again in Sambódromo, at the end of the week following the carnival. This parade has no competitive character, it is only a kind of festival to crown the year’s best schools, where the parade foliões can more carefree with questions.
To provide a parade is necessary at least 10 months working that is shown in just 80 minutes and after this all work done become obsolete, without use.
