The Latin American Coalition will bring the 9th Annual Brazilian Carnaval to Charlotte with ‘A Night in Rio!’ on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Neighborhood Theatre. Pre-sale tickets are $15.

Throughout many countries in the Caribbean it’s Carnaval or Carnival season. Carnival, a festive procession that includes music, dancing, celebration and traditional costumes takes place before the Christian holiday of Lent.

In recent years the event has become trendy thanks to social media showcasing the celebration and festive costumes.

Celebrities like Rihanna from the island of Barbados has also contributed to its popularity with stunning costumes that top the former each year.
