Coming up on its 10-year anniversary, Carnaval do Brazil transforms the spacious ballroom of The Westin Galleria Houston into a colorful, electrifying dance floor filled with masked revelers and live entertainment. Upon arrival, guests receive a complimentary set of Mardi Gras beads and masks, which can be reused later to bring a playful sense of mystery to upcoming traffic-court hearings. A resident mentalist is on hand to conduct psychic readings, and a face painter artfully adorns mugs with images of wild tigers and pandas. The festivities in Rio De Janeiro are projected onto a big screen, which serves as a backdrop for samba dancers, a lively parade, and a fashion show by Rockstar Runway. A snake keeper drapes his coiled pets over the shoulders of willing guests as a stilt walker towers over the crowd. Live DJs, music performances, and dancing continue into the wee hours.
Alex Brazil Group
The team at Alex Brazil Group knows that getting a party started is an ever-evolving art. Sometimes, it requires aerial acrobats, other times, it requires a cash balloon drop. It all depends on the event being celebrated, which for the Houston-area event planners, can range from Halloween to the New Year's Eve Ball to Brazil’s Carnaval. The staff also pride themselves on creating heightened anticipation for any party they throw, ensuring a high-energy event packed with people. And to keep the energy flowing, their vibrant parties delight revelers with the sights and sounds of samba dancers, live music, and snake charmers who always perform with real reptiles, rather than snake-shaped pipe cleaners.
