To be able to participate you only have to:

Buy a costume – it serves as your “ticket” to march with a school. We will have it all already arranged for you. Go to the meeting point of your school in your costume, at the right time. You will not need to attend any rehearsals. You shall understand how to march just following your fellow paraders and participating in the school’s warm-up before entering the Avenue. You will be in the specific wing of your costume, belonging to a particular samba school, in support of which you will be parading. Read and learn more about Rio Samba Parade costumes and learn your samba song.

Select the costume you wish to use for the Parade. It’s your “ticket” to march with the school.
