Hello! Welcome to an interesting blog about Carnivals! If you don’t know what carnivals are, they are colourful, festive celebrations! They usually occur before Lent. There are Carnivals all over the world, some are enormous and some are really small but they all celebrate different cultures.

You can dance, eat, and look at the beautiful costumes they make; they  are very extravagant! Many costumes have  feathers, glitter and rhinestones! There are many pretty headdresses too! There are also masks you can wear to hide your identity.

All Carnivals will involve dancing; usually reflecting the culture of the country or people holding the event.I n South American Carnivals, they do a lot of salsa dancing  with up to 6 -7 samba schools taking part.

Carnivals attract a lot of people. In the famous Rio De Janeiro carnival, there are more than 2,000,000  people on the streets. Also , in the Notting Hill Carnival there are nearly 1,000,000 people .

That’s a lot of people!
