Carmen Miranda - A reveller in 'Carmen Miranda' costume takes party in the traditional 'Cordao da Bola Preta' carnival band parade along Rio Branco avenue, in downtown Rio de Janeiro on February 21, 2009. Though Brazil's carnival will reach a fever pitch Sunday with Rio's flamboyant float competition, Brazilians have already started banging drums, dancing and singing in the sultry streets of Rio and across the country before the official start of what Brazilians dub 'The Greatest Show on Earth.'
