The nation has been dreaming of colourful carnival evenings spent dancing through the vibrant streets of Rio. The feather shaking festival is closer than it first seemed; on Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th June the tropical Rio Carnival Weekender is coming to Flares in Blackpool from 8:00pm until late.

“‘The Shake it! It’s summer’ season is upon us and we are giving away show-stopping feathered masks to partygoers throughout the weekend in true Brazilian style. Flares will be transformed into a scorching hot venue with the funkin’ fruity cocktails being the perfect partner throughout the night, ” said Nimrata Nandhe, marketing manager at the award winning Stonegate Pub Company, which owns and operates Flares.
