blocks

morning rooster
On Zé Pereira's Saturday, the highlight is the largest and most famous carnival group in the world: Galo da Madrugada. Electric trios with popular singers invade the streets of Recife on a path that starts in front of the Cinco Pontas Fort, and heads towards Rua Imperial, passing through Praça Sérgio Loreto (Galo’s headquarters) and the Dantas Barreto and Guararapes avenues. The revelers usually meet at 7 am and the block leaves between 9:30 am and 10 am. It's not a rule to dress up, but it's quite common and part of the tradition of the Rooster's followers. For those who do not like agglomerations and prefer a shady corner and more comfort, it is possible to buy tickets for the various cabins scattered along the way, which have exclusive attractions and usually include an open bar and other services.

In 2019, the most awaited attraction in Recife's carnival will bring the theme "Frevo Mulher", honoring the female strength in society, arts and sport. The singers Amelinha and Lia de Itamaracá, the actress Fabiana Karla, the Olympic medalist Yane Marques and the reveler Léa Lucas will be honored and will parade on floats.
