IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Porto Alegre Carnival began in the 18th century with the entrudo a prank brought over by the Portuguese from the Azores whereby people threw flour water and limão de cheiro missiles at each other. At the end of the 19th century two important Carnival associations were born. Rivalry between the two long dominated the city's Carnival. The corso a parade of floats down Porto Alegre's streets was a celebration enjoyed by the more well-to-do of the city's inhabitants.
