In the tiny town of Parintins, Amazonas, Brazil, one of the largest, most vibrant festivals in the world just came to a close.
Called Festival do Boi-Bumbá, Bumba Meu Boi, or simply Festival, the 99 year old event celebrates a local legend about a resurrected ox. Two teams, Garantido and Caprichoso, compete in extended retellings of the story through two and a half hour shows full of flamboyant dances, singing, and parade floats.
