Brazils Rio Carnival is Cancelled


September 29, 2020



History won’t forget the moment that Rio De Janeiro’s Carnival was cancelled in 2020. The reason why? It marks the first instance that this celebration has been terminated in 100 years. Financially speaking, it’ll also impact Rio De Janeiro in ways that inhabitants never would’ve expected. Two million tourists have immediately been terminated with the cancellation of Rio De Janeiro’s 2020 Carnival.

The Rio De Janeiro League of Samba Schools (LIESA) hosts the yearly celebration. LIESA Organizers confirmed that the continued spread of coronavirus throughout Brazil has made it impossible to host 2020s Carnival. Two million international tourists arriving in Rio De Janeiro would likely inflict hundreds of thousands or millions of coronavirus cases worldwide. The implications seen to Brazil would be extreme & the idiocy of Brazil’s Presider wouldn’t be tolerated any longer. Concerned over the possible international backlash, LIESA made the decision to cancel.

LIESAs decision could be overruled by Rio De Janeiro law enforcement, which has final authority on street parties being permitted during Carnival Week. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will likely require law enforcement to issue permits for street parties. It’ll be the only way that tourists will travel to Brazil & spend their vacation funds. Combating Jair Bolsonaro’s foolish mentalities are multiple Tourist Agencies in Brazil, which are refusing to accept travel packages from other nations.

The Rio De Janeiro Carnival is typically hosted between February 12th to 17th, with an average of five million locals & two million tourists arriving at the celebratory party. Most first-world nations recommend their civilians don’t attend Rio De Janeiro for the Carnival. It’s known that tourists are regularly robbed, sexually assaulted, or murdered. It should be noted that Brazil is the 2nd highest nation worldwide for murders & sexual assaults.

Disappointment Nation-wide

Brazilian’s are likely upset over the announcement that 2020s Carnival has been cancelled. It’s an iconic moment for the nations culture & an essential moment for their economy. Roughly 25+ thousand Brazilians that are employed by Rio De Janeiro’s Carnival for one-week have lost their temporary jobs. This comes after Brazil is the 3rd highest infected nation worldwide of COVID-19, another reason why tourism agencies are recommending their civilians don’t attend 2020 Carnival Street Parties.
