On Saturday the major parade of Carnival took place in Barranquilla with the Battle of the Flowers in the afternoon.

The celebration included large floats, many celebrities and dancers for 5 hours.

We arrived early while people in the troupes were getting ready for the festivities so we were able to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the performers.

The performers dressed in the traditional colorful costumes that they make throughout the year for the competition.

They prepared for the celebration by applying festive makeup for the parade.

The performers and dance troupes walked with their clubs for miles on the hot sunny afternoon along a parade route lined with hundreds of thousands of fans.

This is the second largest Carnival in South America behind Rio.
