Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
Bright colours, scantily clad women and some of the world’s best dancers - it must be Rio's Carnival.
Carnival is one of the biggest events on the Brazilian calendar and one of the biggest festivals in the world.
An estimated two million people line the streets of the five day long festival which is held each year before Lent.
The carnival dates back to 1723 and is a celebration of the gods and great waters. Each year, the carnival holds samba school parades, street carnivals and balls among other events.
