Porto da Pedra has no boundaries when investing on greater and bigger parades

A relative novice Porto da Pedra meaning Port of the Rock, has been among the crème of samba schools since 1995 and achieved its swift success due to great performances as well as big investments from sponsors. Based in Rio’s Niteroi suburbs, across the bay, this school is known for creativity and inventiveness. Its outstanding floats with the tiger highlight, its drum section and the queen with her extravagant attributes are hard to miss.

The Porto da Pedra samba school originated as part of the Porto da Pedra Soccer Club that belonged to a teen street gang. The Club first paraded through the streets in the year 1975 and was immensely successful. In 1978 the school went corporate and a year later it won its first championship due to the theme and the hard work of its founders.

With the theme New Sun of Tomorrow in 1994, the samba schools carried out a parade in Rio De Janeiro’s parade avenue for the first time making it as a vice-champion and was invited to parade in Group 1, later that year.

Adeus Tristeza… Por Favor Não Vá Chorar
Hoje É Dia De Alegria, Seu Sorriso Contagia
Quando O “Circo Do Tigrão” Passar
Vem Ver… No Picadeiro A Magia Acontecer
Vem Ver Uma Criança Sorrir
Com Brilho Nos Olhos, Se Divertir
Oh Palhaço Iluminado
Pela Arte Apaixonado
São Gonçalo É Você…

Hoje Tem Marmelada? Tem Sim Senhor
Nas Ondas Do Rádio, “Fanzoca” Tocou
Vamos Juntos Cantar, Aquela Musiquinha
Parabéns… Carequinha!

No Encanto Do Cinema
O Brasil Parou Pra Ver!
Não É Bobo, É O Herói Da Criançada
Pioneiro Na Tv
“Viva” O Palhaço Do Povo
Para O Mundo É Medalha De Ouro
És Patrimonio Cultural…
A Mais Divertida Estrela Do Céu
Nos Fez Sorrir, Nos Fez Sonhar
Hoje Vai Te Emocionar!!!

Paixão E Orgulho… Do Meu Lugar
Tá Certo Ou Não Tá? Vem Com A Gente Brincar
Sou Porto Da Pedra, Sou Pura Emoção
Com Essa Trupe Conquistei Seu Coração
