What do in Rio from 09 to 12 Fev

How to use

Facebook events linked in the name in blue

cofre-porquinho1– Free * or really cheap events!

* But remember to tip in to the hat so they can keep doing it! 

Cultural issues:
– Events in open air spaces may be cancelled if it rains. If so, they will announce it on the FB event.
– Cariocas in general are not very strict with being on time, so if it starts on a certain time, it’s better to arrive there at least one hour later.
– About prices, half entrance is a Brazilian policy usually for students, +60-yrs old people, but other conditions may apply, such as donations.
– And, finally, friends list is not for VIP or something like that, haha. It’s just a list that producers usually collect through Facebook event and give a discount for everyone in this list. You can post the names on the wall, it’s usually enough.
