The weather reports are in for this Saturday (20 July) – Brazilica Carnival Day in Liverpool – and the city is currently predicted to be hotter than Brazil at a sunny 27 degrees – perfect samba conditions and beating Rio’s cloudy 25 degree forecast!
This balmy Saturday evening will be the perfect setting for the glittering carnival parade which will pass through the city’s streets in a stunning Rio de Janeiro style spectacle which will ensure a magnificent finale to the 9 day long festival, which is taking over Liverpool as we speak.
Over 500 performers will take part in this Rio-style carnival weaving its way through the city centre with glittering costumes, floats and irresistible samba music and dance. The beautiful, bejewelled samba dancers, Brazilian style drummers and spectacular floats will start their journey through the city at 20.00 at Abercrombie Square before leading down Mulberry Street, turning onto Oxford Street, past the Cathedral of Christ the King, then making their way down Hope Street. From here, the carnival will dance down Hardman Street, passing St Luke’s (Bombed Out) Church, down Bold Street, stomp through Church Street and samba up Tarleton Street, landing with a bang at the Main Stage site at Williamson Square, in the heart of Liverpool City Centre, where a number of acts will take to the stage until 23.00 in a completely
FREE fiesta for everyone to enjoy! (Parade route map image top right).
