Carnival Brazil

leave a comment »

The Carnival Brazil kicked off yesterday in Rio with the opening ceremony which sees the Carnival ‘Fat’ King (Momo) crowned by the mayor.

The festival is celebrated in towns, villages and cities across Brazil, although the main event tends to be in Rio, widely known as the carnival capital of the World.

Over half a million visitors from all corners of the World will poor into Rio de Janerio to celebrate this energetic and colourful carnival for the next few days. On Sunday the visually stunning and raunchy Samba parade will snake through the streets, a scene that has made the carnival so well known across the globe.

The city will come alive with countless balls, parties and general hedonistic fun. It is a time for Brazilians to celebrate their rich culture.
