    Uruguay's largest and most famous Carnival is the Las Llamadas Carnival or The Call Parade. It takes place in early February on Isla de Flores St. and Carlos Gardel St. Las Llamadas is as energetic as Rio's Carnival

    Las Llamadas Carnival is what Rio's Carnival used to be before Rio's Carnival became commercialized. In a way, I'm glad Las Llamadas isn't as known to mass tourism. Carnivals across South America are a way for indigenous groups and Africans to come together and celebrate their ancestry.
