Carnival parades in SP and RJ will be on April 22nd and 23rd – News

After decision of city ​​halls to postpone the parades on account of the worsening of Covid-19 pandemic, Liga-SP (Liga Independente das Escolas de Samba de São Paulo) and Liesa (Liga Independente das Escolas de Samba do Rio de Janeiro) announced the new party calendar, scheduled from April 16 to 30 this year. The special group’s parade in both cities will be on the 22nd and 23rd of the month.

With the arrival of Ômicron, a new variant of the coronavirus, and the influenza epidemic, the two capitals saw the number of cases and hospitalizations for respiratory syndrome explode in recent weeks.

The street carnival, announced by the mayors in the second half of 2021, ended up being canceled at the beginning of January this year. The city halls, however, kept the samba school parades, under the justification that the parties would allow the fulfillment of sanitary protocols.

This Friday (21), city halls also decided to cancel the samba school parade. In a joint note, the municipal administrations claimed that the decision came “in respect of the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil and the need, at this time, to preserve lives and join forces to boost vaccination throughout the national territory”.
