Beatles fans got a special treat during Monday's continuing carnival celebrations in Rio de Janeiro.
Thousands of revellers came down to Flamengo Beach to join the"Sargento Pimenta," (Portuguese for "Sergeant Pepper") street parade.
As the name suggests, the party's theme was the legendary sixties band The Beatles and their 1967 album, Sergeant Pepper.
Renditions of famous songs like "Twist and Shout" and "All You Need Is Love," were played to the crowds with a Brazilian twist.
As many as 850,000 tourists descend on Rio for the five-day-long Carnival free-for-all.
"Sargento Pimenta", the brainchild of music-loving doctor Gustavo Gitelman, is one of more than 400 raucous street parties that spring up throughout Rio de Janeiro during Carnival season.
Gitelman quickly rounded up an enthusiastic group of Beatles aficionados - so many, in fact that the Fab Four became more of a Fab 70 at the party's debut last year.
"The message in their songs has everything to do with what Carnival is all about," he said.
On Monday, a dozen or so singers dressed in T-shirts hung with gilded epaulettes like those on the "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album cover belted out a medley from atop a sound-truck.
The percussion band that accompanied them was swallowed up in the sea of humanity that turned out for the show, but their rhythms rocked the crowd.
