SPECIAL INVITE FOR MAN EXPEDITIONS
Date: March 2, 2019
Who: 20 invited guests from Man Expeditions
Man Expeditions has been invited by one of the largest samba schools in Rio (G.R.E.S Renascer de Jacarepaguá) to join their float in the Carnival parade on March 2, 2019. We have be offered 20 spots on their float which we can extend to our invited guests. Accommodations are already nearly fully booked in Rio so if you’re interested you will need to decide quickly.
The Parade Experience takes us into the Rio Carnival’s purpose-built stadium, the Sambódromo, and unlike the thousands of people there to watch we’ll be performing on a float!
We’ll join forces with other performers wearing the same incredible costumes to form a spectacular decorative effect.
The School’s Carnival Consultant will handle every detail and work with us on selecting our costumes. The opportunity to represent a school at Carnival is a huge honor, rooted in years of tradition and each year’s theme is painstakingly created with every last detail executed to bring it to life.
We’ll be immersed into this world by our Carnival Consultant and briefed on the 2019 theme and music so when you arrive we’ll already feel part of it and raring to go!
On the day of the carnival we will be driven in via private transfer and our experience will be captured by one of the school photographers so we’ll have the memories to look back over for a lifetime.
The Signature Parade Experience includes:
Position on a float with a group of people dressed in the same costume
Bespoke costume made to measure
Carnival Consultant who guides us on the costume selection and briefing for the 2019 theme and music
Small alterations to our costumes upon arrival in Rio
Group transportation to the Sambódromo
Carnival host to escort us onto the float
