It is back!
Glittery and outrageous costumes were prepared again as Brazil welcomed the Carnival parades.
Samba songs were ringing out 'til dawn at Rio de Janeiro’s sold-out parade grounds.
Cities cut loose!
Top samba schools spend millions on hour-long parades with elaborate floats and costumes.
Hundreds of raucous, roaming parties were flooding the streets.
Brazil's working class was buoyed, emotionally and economically by the comeback of the carnival.
No more gloom:
This is a fresh start as last year's carnival was watered down some of the fun, which was attended mostly by locals.
Most tourists were eager to go to street parties, known as blocos.
