Need I say more !

Parintins, an otherwise unremarkable small river town roughly halfway between Manaus & Santarém, has in recent years become the unlikely centre of one of the largest mass events in Brazil, the Boi Bumba celebrations every June (the date varies, but it’s always the weekend before June 24).
The resemblance to Rio is not coincidental, the organizers having consciously modelled themselves on Rio’s Carnaval. During the remainder of the year Boi Bumba dancers perform on an open air stage often coinciding with the arrival of a Amazon cruise liner
