Carnaval Brasileiro is one of Austin’s biggest gems. In addition to elaborate costumed dance numbers performed by the Austin Samba School (see those photos here), the fans and attendees themselves get in on the act, dressing up in costumes that range from quirky to kinky. Many attendees dress simply in spirited Brazilian Carnaval attire—feathers, body paint, masks, beads, sequins, etc.
