For all the events at Sambodromo, you need to have most wanted Samba Parade tickets. First of all, you have to decide which sector to get tickets for and whether you want front boxes, allocated chairs or you would prefer staying in the grandstands. When you pay a little more for the best ticket, you get the best views. If you can afford to, book your space in the open boxes at the front as they provide comfortable spacing and seating along with better views. You will find allotted numbering on Sectors 12 and 13, and also find numbered seats at Grandstands Sector 9. All other grandstand seats are unnumbered and free to be occupied by spectators. Please note that none of grandstands offer an actual seat, what you will find in a space to seat at cement bleachers.
Different schools perform on different days, the 2 crucial nights being Sunday and Monday, which have similar set up. Every day’s shows are different and you need a different Sambodromo ticket for each day. In 2014, Mangueira Samba School will hold its march on Sunday, so the Sambodromo ticket is going to be much in demand for that particular day. Twelve samba schools march over the 2 nights; 6 schools performing per night.
