While the parades in the Sambódromo on Sunday and Monday night were typically spectacular, they of course are not the only celebration of Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. Yesterday also saw a massive bloco gather in the neighborhood of Flamengo, where thousands celebrated “Sargento Pimento,” better known as “Sergeant Pepper.” The street celebration was based on the music of the Beatles as its theme, and was a good example of the types of popular parades and celebrations that fill the streets of Rio during Carnaval. The images are impressive, yet representative of the types of costumes, celebrations, and social and cultural nature of Carnaval for a significant number of Brazilians in cities like Rio.
