Carnival in Olinda

Carnaval de Recife e Olinda


The magic of the Carnival continues in the colonial town of Olinda with the young and old partying together. As expected, the 2014 Carnival in Olinda will play host to a number of celebrities who head to the town every year to enjoy the Carnival delights. Energetic crowds line the streets right from morning, dancing to the pulsating rhythms of drums and horns. No Carnival in Olinda is complete without a costume that range from the most exotic to the most outrageous. The Carnival is all about having fun, with the first party beginning two Sundays before the Carnival. The show is inaugurated by the New Virgens do Bairro Novo de Olinda, a group that sets the Carnival fires alight. The giant papier-mâché puppets or Bonecos are equally popular and can be seen marching all through the Carnival week.
