Saturday's Sambodrome was a dancing, singing and extremely colourful event, like a carnival in Rio. Athletes and volunteers were led by Brazilian dancers dressed in colourful costumes, moving beautifully to the rhythm of Latin American music.

Rector Jóźwik also invited Lodz residents to join in the fun, emphasising that the Games are an event organised for the residents to have fun and experience positive emotions. The musical parade started in front of the countdown clock set up for the Games.
