The event, which runs from Feb 13 to 18, is one of the biggest and most spectacular carnivals in the world, with giant, colourful parades taking place day and night.

According to the event website, the carnival's theme this year is "King of Media", to mark an era of media supremacy. The themes in previous years included King of Music (2015) and King of Gastronomy (2014).
