Rio Carnival people

There usually are about 4,000 participants for each Samba School parading on a carnival night in Rio in the sambodrome. At present time (2019) 7 Samba Schools parade for each of the 2 nights.

This accounts for about 25-28,000 samba dancers each night, all of them singing aloud and doing their best to appear. Quite a show.

These are some of them.
