Garantido Camp

Parintins is divided like Hatfields and McCoys into two rival factions that square off annually in friendly competition for the crown of Boi Bumba. Members of Garantido are all decked out in red, while Caprichoso wears blue. The two sides don’t mingle, even in the off-festival times. Visitors can tour their huge hangarlike workshops—on either side of town—where artisans work their magic, decorating dazzling costumes with thousands of feathers and building massive, vividly painted floats that depict Amazonian creatures, both real and fantastic.
