You will be able to watch the "Bloco do Beco" parade, a movement that began in 2020, when a group of friends, the "Grupo do Beco", held a Carnival parade that brought together about 10,000 people in the city streets. Samba, drums, and joy will not be missing. You can see them on Saturday, 18th (starting at 4pm), and Sunday, 19th (starting at 3pm), on a route that starts at Praça do Comércio, passes through Praça 8 de Maio and Largo da Portagem, and returns to Praça do Comércio 

At the end of the parades, you can still enjoy musical performances.
