Rio de Janeiro heats up for second day of carnival

STORY: The parade competition is one of the top attractions of the annual Carnival celebrations that sweep the city every year and each samba school is made up of a regiment of dancers, drummers and divas.

Lins Imperial Samba School spearheaded the parade with an homage to Brazilian actor and musician Carlinhos Mussum.

This year's carnival was pushed back from its traditional date in February to April due to the global health crisis.
