2015 Carnival in Rio de Janeiro

The show went on at the world’s most-celebrated Carnival parades, despite a tropical deluge that soaked thousands of feather-clad dancers, wildly-costumed musicians and masses of spectators at Rio de Janeiro’s Sambadrome.

The skies opened up about an hour ahead of the start of the all-night extravaganza, drenching revelers, flooding streets near the Sambadrome and even the walkways within Rio’s Mecca of Carnival.
