Carro alegórico - float.
Trio elétrico - Well, band float or a band on a float, but that is just that; tough a bit decorated the truck is not that powered like the ones in Brazil, quite simple I would say. Anyway the joy is guaranteed. Wouldn´t translate our tall and high powered (with generators with plenty of horsepower and people on their roofs, bands and all that jazz. I mean, all that samba, axé, or other African rhytms! )
Now the Brazilian counterpart...
PARTY TRUCK, a truck used in Carnival celebrations that is outfitted with speakers and sometimes features bands on the roof.
A [CARNIVAL] SOUND TRUCK
On Feb. 20, a 21-year-old woman in Rio de Janeiro died after falling 13 feet (4 meters) from atop a Carnival sound truck in front of Copacabana beach, striking her head on the pavement.
Might be other ways to say that, the concept is like the above presented.
I mean, it´s more on the sense of it than plain translation.
