Brazilian Carnival “The Greatest Party on Earth” Photos

Brazil’s Carnival kicked off with millions of people taking to the streets of the northeastern city of Salvador de Bahia to dance and party, effectively putting the nation on a week-long hiatus. The climax arrives Sunday and Monday with Rio de Janeiro’s extravagant and over-the-top fantasy floats. The five-day annual carnival celebration officially is expected to draw about 800,000 tourists, both foreign and Brazilian, who will pack hotels to nearly 100 percent capacity and spend about $559 million, according to  Rio de Janeiro state’s tourism department.
