Brazilian Carnival Ball In Pictures
 
This isn't kiting related but it was fun, so here goes ...


We went to a Brazilian Carnival Ball in Miami recently. Paulo Gualano has been putting these celebrations on for ex-pat Brazilians and other interested parties for many years through http://aboutshow.net/joomla/



Here is a video of some of the stage performances during the night:

Paula in Roman carnival garb with his samba troops. We've have seen them put on excellent shows at churrascaria over the years.

I don't know how many people came to the ball but it sure seemed like a lot. These Brazilians really know how to party.



There was dancing from 10 pm on along with numerous stage shows.

I had seen this group perform in Hollywood and captured an intriguing black & white image sequence. http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=2289

People were encouraged to come in creative masks with prizes for the winners. This fellow won a roundtrip flight to Brazil.
