The 2021 event was canceled for the first time in a century as the pandemic ravaged the world.

Last year’s festival took place when the coronavirus was still in its infancy, but crowds were limited.

The parade, normally celebrated in February, has been postponed by two months this year due to Omicron’s conquest of Brazil.

The country’s cases spiked in January as Omicron spread rapidly, but levels have now fallen to a December 2021 low.

More than 663,000 people died from Covid-19 in Brazil – the second-highest number of any country in the world, according to Our World Data.

Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes kicked off the celebrations by presenting the key to the city to Carnival’s “King Momo” on April 20, Wilson Dias da Costa Neto.

The street festivals in Rio didn’t get a permit from City Hall, but Paes said he wouldn’t use the city watch.

He said: “City Hall will not prevent people from being in public spaces to celebrate, but it is impossible for it to happen on such a (big) scale.”

Parades of dancers were seen entertaining the crowds in stunning outfits.

Photos show members of the samba schools Unidos Do Viradouro, Sao Clemente, Salgueiro and Beija Flor taking part in the parade down the catwalk.

Carnaval was originally a food festival celebrating Catholic and European pagan traditions, but it has since blossomed into a week-long bonanza of dances and parades.

Sequins, glitter and daring looks, backed by impossibly toned bodies, were sighted in every direction.

The colorful outfits complemented bright smiles and happy faces with revelers looking overjoyed to be there.

Geography teacher Ana Vieira, 48, who has been parading for 20 years, said she was overwhelmed with happiness.

She told the Daily Mail: “I’m just so happy. I think a lot of people will cry… myself included.

“Carnival is life. You can see the joy on people’s faces after two long years of staying at home and missing them.”
