  • Here are the best parties during carneval. Make sure to buy tickets early as they get more expensive with time.
  • Attended Feira Hype during GP Brazil.
  • For those who likes to bet on horses racing it's great but if you don't you can just admire the beautiful place. In addition to betting area, inside the Jockey you can also find bars, restaurants, club, gym, yoga school, theatre, bank branch, temporary exposition and fairs salon, and parking.
