Carnival in Rio has been called the world's most famous party. A million tourists join millions of Rio de Janeiro citizens ('cariocas') in enthusiastic revelry spanning several days. The highlight is the Sambodromo parade. Only the best 14 samba schools parade through the big-time Sambodromo (the rest conduct street processions). The competition to be judged the best overall samba school is keen - and everyone wants to win. It can take over an hour for a single samba school to pass a given point along the parade route. Each samba school has showy floats, which are often garnished with sensuous females vibrating to the hypnotic music.
