We all know that the most exciting, colorful and bigger Carnival in the world it´s the Brazilian Carnival. Brazilians put big efforts the all year to prepare the country for his biggest commemoration.
Blaring music and scantily-clad dancers at the Sambadrome impressed the visitors at the fun show. This year 2016 the winner of the show was ” A Mangueira”. Twelve schools participated in the Special Group of Rio Carnival By regulation, were evaluated in nine categories: Harmony, fantasy, floats and props, front commission, master of ceremonies and flag bearer, samba-plot, battery, and plot developments.
Carnival is a five-day-long party where tourists and locals across the country flock outside to watch bands and samba schools perform. Rio de Janeiro is preparing for the Gay Gala on Tuesday, a bustling show where drag queens from around the world dance and show off their costume during an all-night party.
About 5 million revelers were expected to show up to the week-long festivities this year.
This year’s Carnival celebrations helped allay some of Brazil’s tensions as economic woes and fresh fears of the Zika virus loom large in communities across the country. But Zika wouldn’t be the reason of no celebrations by the Brazilian people as this is the biggest Carnival in the world and one of the most important events in the country economically.
