Brazilian Entertainment At Your Mardi Gras Event
Well known for it’s colourful and dazzling parades, Mardi Gras marks the start of the carnival season and has become a popular cultural phenomenon in many countries. Known in French as, “Fat Tuesday” the international celebration dates back thousands of years ago and marks the last day before Lent where Christians indulged in lots of food before preparing to fast. These pre-Lent festivals continue to take place in many Catholic countries and attract millions of tourists and revellers every year.
The most famous Mardi Gras celebrations include the Venice Carnival, famous for its fabulously flamboyant masquerade balls and New Orleans’ parade, where the city hosts a huge carnival full of native and traditional entertainment, singers and food stalls. Neither of these attractions are, however, as famous as Brazil’s Mardi Gras celebrations and the extravagant Rio de Janeiro Carnival. A wild 5-day celebration, 40 days before Easter, Rio Carnival is a magical and euphoric event allowing millions of people to dance, sing and be a part of the world's biggest party! Attracting an impressive 500,000 foreign visitors every year, it is not only the biggest and most artistic carnival in the world but also sets a benchmark against which every other Mardi Gras celebration is compared too.
