A country of feats ...

The "Trios", trailers with speakers and orchestra on the roof, often accompanied by a second "support" truck with a bar and infirmary for registered participants.
25 km of streets, squares and avenues are closed for the carnival, including 11 km strictly for parades (4 km for circuit Dodo and 7 km for circuit Osmar Batatinha).
Unlike the Rio Carnival, which is largely for the show, the carnival of Salvador is a street carnival. Carnival is the feast of feasts. Many Brazilians come to live in Salvador, leaving Rio to foreigners. During 4 days and 4 nights, the whole city is in the street. Groups, corporations and sects come together to sing and dance until exhaustion. All the extravagances are permitted.
