One of the biggest carnivals staged outside Brazil, the colourful Carnaval Brasiliero is undoubtedly Austin's biggest and wildest party. Started in 1975 by homesick Brazil students, it now attracts crowds of more than 5,000 partygoers to warm up the cold winter night with dances, sambas and marches. Live Brazilians bands provide the soundtrack and dress up is encouraged, with face and body paint proving particularly popular.
