Rio Carnival Parade Prices

December 4, 2009

Planning on taking your dream vacation to Rio de Janeiro for Carnival? Are you wondering how much it’s going to cost you to attend the Carnival Parade? On Tuesday, December 1, LIESA, the Independent Samba School League, accepted reservations for Carnival 2010 runway boxes, ranging from about US$1000 to US$3,800 for a box with six seats.

LIESA samba schools form the Special Group. Ticket reservation requests for mezzanine boxes and runway boxes must be submitted by fax. On Dec.18, runway box hopefuls who were selected first-come, first-serve will be notified and will then make their payment at a spot designated by LIESA.

If you’re got a travel agent taking care of your Rio Carnival 2010 tickets, a partner agency in Rio possibly took care of reservations for you today. If you’re curious as to how much LIESA tickets cost when bought straight from the source, go to the LIESA website and click on “Ingressos” on the menu to the left. All ticket prices have been posted now: mezzanine boxes (camarotes, runway boxes (frisas), individual seats (cadeiras) and bleachers (arquibancadas).

The next reservation dates, to be announced, will be for individual seats and bleachers; reservations will be submitted by phone. According to LIESA, those dates will be in the first half of January.
