Thousands show up to Rio's street party ahead of the carnival

Feb 18, 2019 12:31 IST

Thousands of people, some dressed as their favorite superhero or heroine, attended a street party in Rio de Janeiro ahead of the world famous carnival that begins early next month. Formed in the 1920s by locals, the 'blocos', or street parties, appeared mainly in the suburbs as an alternative to the big carnival celebrations. It is an opportunity for neighborhoods to get together and organize their own impromptu parade.
