These two pictures illustrate the differences in clothing/costumes in Carnival. The picture on the left was taken in 2013, and the one on the right was taken in 1973. You can see the contrast between these two pictures by looking at what they are wearing and what they are doing. The girls in the left are there to celebrate with their friends, attempting to dress in colorful outfits. The picture taken in the 70’s clearly has more tradition, by seeing the elaborate costumes, props, and they are actively marching and participating.
