Compared to Carnival for its grandeur, the Parintins Festival happens on the last weekend of June.
Parintins is a Brazilian municipality in the interior of the state of Amazonas. It is the second most populous city in the state.
It is located on the right bank of the Amazon River. The vegetation, typical of the Amazon region, is formed by lowland and upland forests, having around it a relief composed of lakes, islets and a small mountain range.
The name Garantido came from the creator himself, Lindolfo Monteverde, who in his tunes always reminded the fans of the opposite ox that his bumbá always came out of the street clashes that, at the time, were routine.
Lindolfo used to say that, in fights with rivals, his ox's head never broke or was damaged, “that was guaranteed”.
Caprichoso defends the colors blue and white. His symbol is the blue star, which he has displayed on his forehead since 1996. He is the Guardian of the Forest, of the parintinense folklore, of the caboclo imagination and of the legendary of the indigenous peoples.
The name, Caprichoso, would have an intrinsic meaning to him, that is, people full of caprice, work and honesty. The suffix "oso", meaning provided or full of glory. When added, "caprice" plus "oso", it can be said that it is extravagant and exquisite in its art.
