Banda de Ipanema

This long-standing banda (procession) attracts a wild crowd, complete with drag queens and others in costume. Don’t miss it.

Que Merda É Essa?

This playful gathering (which means 'What the shit is this?') is a big draw in Ipanema. Beginning near Nascimento da Silva, it eventually makes its way along the beach.
