A big carnival started in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. It is a big celebration. People have a lot of beautiful and expensive clothes.

Many Samba schools show their dance in the festival. They want to show that they are the best of all. They walk and dance 90 minutes. Judges watch them. They will say who it the best. The celebration is for three days. Millions of people dance at parties in the streets of the city.

Interesting words: celebration (party), judge (somebody who says what it good and what is wrong).
