Thousands of revellers participated in the traditional 28th Bloco da Lama (Mud block) carnival in Parati, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil.

The event, which was begun by two men in a playful manner in 1986, has now become a traditional carnival in which participants disguised as primitives with rags, lianas or skulls and bones, dive in the mud.
