Numerous samba drummers will help get you “moving and grooving” on race day! Several years ago, we came up with the idea to present the drummers in advance at the race packet pick-up on Saturday. What started as a simple idea has since then grown into a spectacular show with hundreds of spectators!

At 3:00 p.m. all available Samba bands meet in front of the steps outside the Congress Center. The event kicks off with a joint “groove-in” session followed by each band playing individually. The music-filled afternoon drums up lots of excitement and energy for race day. The music directors coordinate with each other on-the-spot and the entire program emerges spontaneously without any rehearsals. In other words – a true samba session. You won’t want to miss out!
