What an entertaining task! Fantastic video chioce, really interesting.THANK YOU! I´d like to share that I am from Argentina and Carnival is highly celebrated here as well. The Carnival celebration takes place mainly in Gualeguaychú (Entre Rios province) and tourists are welcomed with magnificent parades. On the other hand, Corsos (smaller parades with circus-like performances) walk down the main avenues with loud music and colorful costumes. https://vamospanish.com/discover/carnival-celebrations-in-argentina/
