Carro de apoio E-mail
A carro de apoio (support vehicle) is part of the infrastructure of modern commercial carnival associations in Brazil, especially in Salvador, Bahia. They are usually large trucks that provide support for the main attracion, the Trio Eletrico truck with the musicians, and contain WCs, bars, a VIP access area, medical assistance or even hairdressers. Together, this equipment composes a mobile concert hall with all ammeniities. During the rest of the year, the associations use this infrastructure to cater countless Micareta festivals and other events around Brazil.
