If you thought Carnival was only in Rio, you were wrong. Salvador's Carnival is not as big, and you won't find women dressed in elaborate feather costumes. Carnival Bahia is focused on everyone participating and having the biggest party possible. It covers the streets of Salvador every year for five days leading up to Ash Wednesday, with parades, music, drumming and dancing.
Venue: Rua Marques de Sapucai
