Pictures: Carnival around the world

Carnival season technically begins on Jan. 6, also known as Twelfth Night and runs through Mardi Gras, which falls on Feb. 28, 2017, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Big celebrations around the world usually occur in those final two weeks, but some happen earlier.
