Desfile das Campeãs - Champions Parade

This event has finished

Flushed with the success of their show-stealing parade in the early hours of Tuesday morning, the eight thousand or so members of the Vila Isabel samba school get to shimmy their way down the sambódromo one last time on Saturday during the Parade of Champions. The judges' top six-placed schools all get another go, starting with Grande Rio at 9pm then Salgueiro, Imperatriz Leopoldense, Unidos da Tijuca, Beija-Flor and finally the champs, whose theme of the agriculture of Brazil and its workers won over the scorers.

There may not be the tension or quite the same air of expectation pulsing through the sambódromo as on the two nights of competition, but for the die-hard fans, or indeed anybody who regrets not making the effort to go last weekend, the Champions Parade is something of a must.
