The biggest street party in the world has come and gone. For six days (Friday, February 5 to Wednesday, February 10, 2016) the streets of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil was filled with colours, beauties, magic and frills.

Six top samba troupes based in the South American city staged spectacular carnival parades at the huge Sambadrome venue in Rio. The city beat the Zika virus threat and played host to more than 4,000 performers and 78,000 fans seated in the magnificent arena.

The Grupo Especial, made up of twelve of the city’s top sambo schools, competed against themselves over two nights. Each school choose a story of historical or allegorical significance and choreographed song, dance, and custom leading to an explosion of colours and thrills. The Olympics was a popular theme this year.

The carnival, which comes just before Lent every year, is the biggest tourism export in Brazil and arguably in the whole of South America.
