Carnival Costumes for Men and Women

The Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is a very colourful and world famous festival held before Lent every year and considered the biggest carnival in the world with over two million people per day celebrating on the streets. Historically, it is believed that the first festival of Rio dates back to the early 1700s. The Carnival which takes place over a number of days, comprises of street parades filled with revellers, floats and numerous Samba Schools. Each of these schools is composed of a collaboration of local neighbours that want to attend carnival together and each will develop its own costume theme.
