RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Un centenar de perros tuvieron su día de festival previo al carnaval de Río de Janeiro, que inicia a fines de este mes.

Una banda de metales de 10 integrantes y un cantante entonaron a todo pulmón la canción emblema de esta urbe "Cidade Maravilhosa", para comenzar el festival mientras los dueños y canes se congregaron para festejar el domingo en la playa de Copacabana.

Fabricio Gonsalves traía la misma guirnalda hawaiana que Belinha, su bulldog Francés de color blanco con negro. "¡Los perros también aman el carnaval!", dijo sobre el evento.

Varios caninos traían tutús diminutos, algunos iban vestidos de personajes como Blanca Nieves y otro traía la frente llena de bindis, los puntos decorativos usados en la India. Un gato solitario iba seguro arriba de su dueño, vistiendo alas de ángel azul.

Río tiene decenas de fiestas callejeras llamadas blocos en las semanas previas al carnaval, que este año comienza el 28 de febrero.
