The Carnival of Brazil (Portuguese: Carnaval do Brasil, IPA: [kaʁnaˈvaw]) is an annual festival held between the Friday afternoon (51 days before Easter) and Ash Wednesday at noon, which marks the beginning of Lent, the forty-day period before Easter.
Five days of dancing, drinking and spectacular costumes have begun in Brazil as the country's carnival season gets started.
This year groups of women in several cities are organising street parades with a feminist twist, using Brazil's biggest festival to challenge clichés and defend women's freedoms.
Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil and has become an event of huge proportions. Except for industrial production, retail establishments such as malls, and carnival-related businesses, the country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities
Rhythm, participation, and costumes vary from one region of Brazil to another.Here are some of the colorful pictures from Brazil Carnival 2015 which will make you feel why Brazil Carnival is that much rocking.
