Few people turned out at the New Marginal of Luanda, prepared for 10, 360 people.

The coincidence of the time between the start of the Carnival and that of football match that brought together  1º de Agosto (Angola) and Zimbabwe Platinum (3-0) may have contributed to the low turnout.

1º de Agosto received the counterpart Platinum of Zimbabwe for the first leg match of qualifying for African Champions League group stage.

The carnival group União Kazukuta of Sambizanga opened the track at 05:30 pm.

The 4th Edition of Carnival kicked off Saturday (February 10th), gathering 15 child groups.

Sunday (11th) parade saw 14 groups of Class B in Adult category.

The central event, expected to gather 12 groups of A Class, is set for Tuesday.
