Hi! You can take a look at this link. It shows the dates, time and places of the blocos. Carnival is from February 9th to 12th , but we have many blocos before and after the party itself.

I usually prefer the small blocos, because the famous ones are the busiest ones, they are very cool, but very crowded too. But, it's your 1st time in Rio, so you should see how this big party works. Some of the most famous are bloco das Carmelitas (in Santa Teresa), Empolga às 9 (in Copacabana), Simpatia é quase amor and Que merda é essa?(in Ipanema), Bangalafumenga (Flamengo) and Carioca da Gema (Lapa). If you stick around Downtown and South Zone areas, you will find many blocos and I'm sure you're going to have a lot of fun.

Hope you enjoy your stay!

PS: If you don't understand the agenda, let me know, I can try to help you out.
