With Micareta, the joyous and free carnival in Brazil continues throughout the year!! Born in the north-east of the country, this celebration is focused on the street party. Authentic and friendly, it often involves the use of spectacular trios elétricos to provide the crowd with an unforgettable musical experience. The creation of this complementary event to the traditional festivities of entry into Lent dates back to 1937 when heavy rains prevented the carnival from being held at Feira de Santana, in the state of Bahia. Residents then made the decision not to wait another year to enjoy the planned party, but simply shifted it to a more favorable period weather-wise in late April. Immediately popular, the Micareta turned into an annual rendezvous. It is one of the most famous festive events of the Nordeste alongside the carnival of Salvador.
