Brazil Carnival: Send Us Your Photos

Posted: Updated:

Brazil's Carnival revelry begins this Friday and lasts until February 24. While the global economic crisis has dampened some spirits and caused Brazilian officials to worry that less foreign tourists will show up, the party will go on. And Rio's tourism agency expects that local tourists will turn out in high numbers, reports the AP.

"Carnival is Carnival," said Cristiane Estrello, a 30-year-old from southern Brazil who was touring the Sambadrome's half-mile long parade ground with her husband and young daughter. "There is no crisis in the world that can put out the flames of this party."
