    Carnaval, the Mother of All Parties — Carnaval! No other event on earth is as closely tied to a specific country as Carnaval is to Brazil.
     This is the party to end all parties -- it's a marathon of enjoyment for days of nonstop singing, dancing, drinking, and general over-the-top merrymaking. The most famous celebrations are those in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Olinda.
      Rio's Carnival, the best known of the three, is visually spectacular.
     The parade that culminates the 4-day festival includes 14 samba teams, each of which puts on a 90-minute show with 3,500 to 5,000 people singing and dancing in elaborate costumes, accompanied by huge colorful floats. In the days preceding the parade, visitors and residents of Rio head out to extravagant balls where celebrities and common folk dance the night away wearing skimpy and outlandish costumes.
      Recent years have also seen a revival of the street festivals popular in days of yore. Neighborhood musical groups known as blocos parade down the streets, Pied Piper-like, while spectators follow, singing and dancing through the city.
     Salvador's Carnaval is the second most famous in Brazil, popular with Brazilian tourists who love its unique atmosphere and music. You won't hear samba in Salvador; Afro axé ; is the beat of choice.
     The event is almost exclusively a street party with huge crowds dancing in Pelourinho, the historic city core.
      Also very popular with Brazilians (and increasingly so with visitors) is the colorful celebration in Olinda. The Mamulengo puppets play an important role, as the parades and music follow them through the hilly cobblestone streets dancing to the fast frevo rhythms that are uniquely Pernambucan.
