Carnaval Brasileiro 2013 at the Palmer Event Center in Austin Texas on February 2, 2013.

Carnaval Brasileiro is a dance and costume party, with live music, held each year in Austin, Texas. The theme this year was ‘Peter Pan’. Indeed, there were Peters and Wendys and Tinkerbells and pirates and Indians plenty.

Here are some of Mark Shapiro’s photographs of the Brazilian band, the ‘Peter Pan’ floor show, and the costumed revelers.
