For 31 years the carnival celebration has been a cultural festival for the people of Copenhagen. This year (2013) the organisers have been forced to rethink the idea and change the location and duration due to problems with funding.

In 1985 the samba school Mocidade paraded to the Carnival in Rio with their samba enredo ZIRIGUIDUM. For the Copenhagen Carnival 2014 the samba school Carioca provides this classic new life.
