Rio de Janeiro Carnival

Held prior to Lent each year, the festival is a great fun and an extravaganza of color and festivities to which many thousands of people flock each and every year. The make-up of the carnival is quite extraordinary, with luxury balls and galas being held across the city and many carnival festivities taking place in the Sambadrome in downtown .

With influences from African dance and the roots of carnivals in Roman mythology, the mix of cultures on display at the carnival is extraordinary and is certainly a sight to behold for everyone who is involved with it.
