Countdown to event:

Although other Catholic countries around the world celebrate the days before Lent in a similar way, no other carnival celebration can even begin to rival that in Rio – it’s considered the largest in the world, hosting around two million attendees.

And much of the five-day party’s legacy is down to the Rio’s samba schools and their world-class entertainment – basically, if the word ‘carnival’ makes images of colour, chaos and dancing pop into your head, it’s probably the schools’ parades you’re thinking of.

You have to see them to feel the full impact.
