Honk Rio and the pre-Carnival

Are you not going to be here for the Carnival? Good news: Rio is an endless Carnival and you will be able to taste a little bit.

Tomorrow (11/24) starts HONK, internacional brass bands festival, on its second edition. On the schedule, 26 brass bands and 4 carnival blocos. 4 days, always starting from 2pm. The idea is to occupy the city in many venues as Historical Center, Downtown, Santa Teresa, Complexo do Alemão, Méier and even Niterói. If I were you,  I wouldn’t miss this opportunity! All concerts are free, at the streets, but they accept contributions, as the festival is independant.
