Moshpix: One of the biggest events of the year in the local Brazilian community is Chicago Samba's Queen of Samba competition, held recently at Logan Square Auditorium. Contestants shake, shimmy and gyrate their way to the crown, which the winner gets to hold for a year. Rebecca Vieira (middle) was crowned this year's Queen, and Yunuen Oseguera (far, right) took home the Princess crown.
