The Brazilian Carnival is the event of a national scale. The festivities take place in several Brazilian cities: Sao Paulo, Recife, Salvadore and others. But the most famous and bright Festival is still in Rio-de-Janeiro.

The main event of the festival is the performance of the 12 best samba schools, in each of which several thousand dancers can participate. The performance of each school is dedicated to one theme and takes about 80 minutes. Parade carriages and moving platforms are used too. A young girl in the role of the Queen of the Percussions group (“rainha de bateria”) is in the center of each performance. The general requirement to all the participants is to keep the national Brazilian color. 40 members of the jury judge the performances by certain criteria, defining the winner and the Queen of the Carnival. Six best schools repeat their performances a day before the Lent (the so-called parade of champions).

The Carnival attracts much attention both in the country and abroad. According to the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism during the Carnival in 2014 the country was visited by 6.6 million tourists. The profit of the festival was more than $2.3 billion.

In 2015 the municipal authorities have prolonged the festival up to March, 1 in order to mark in such a way the 450th Anniversary of Rio-de-Janeiro foundation. Brazilian Carnival - in photo gallery by TASS.
