We just received word from the transmitter that, “Parade was scheduled for 21.30, but will delay a little. Once it begins, we will broadcast live on this page (if the video above is not displayed, then press F5).”
So, if you purchased the Guide to Watching Carnival online, do know that the link works. The rain has pushed back the start!
As always, the Brazil Travel Center is your number 1 source for Brazil Carnival information.
