Virtually every continent of the world has carnival celebrations; they’re typically a public celebration or parade which involves elements of circus, the wearing of flamboyant costumes and public street parties. Two of the most popular of these types of carnivals are the North American Mardi Gras celebrated in New Orleans and the Brazilian Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro.
