In Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, the Carnival is very famous. People organise it every year. It is very big. Millions of people come there.

A week before the festival, it is not quiet in Rio. Thousands of people go to the streets. They wear costumes. Some costumes are traditional and others are modern. One man dresses as Wonder Woman. A group of people dress up as the Minions.
