Moshpix: One of the biggest events of the year in the local Brazilian community is Chicago Samba's Queen of Samba competition, held Saturday at Logan Square Auditorium. Contestants shake, shimmy and gyrate their way to the crown, which the winner gets to hold for a year. Karlies Kelly (left) was crowned this year's Queen and the 12 months of shaking rights that come with it.
