The Sambadrome is ready for people and floats like you see on TV but meanwhile…

Neighborhoods all over Rio make their own party like this that I enjoyed at last year’s (2016) celebration.

 

All ages, all races joined in to play music together and follow the small parade around the neighborhood. Some people danced, a fair amount drank beer and some people like these charming fellows dressed up “homeless”. I could see where some people might find this offensive but perhaps Carnival is going to extremes so you can carry on the rest of the year.

I think maybe I even started looking Brazilian during that trip…
