RIO DE JANEIRO — The Rio Games officially end Sunday with a closing ceremony that starts at 6 p.m. CT and is expected to feature mass choreography and a Carnivale parade, with samba legend Martinho da Vila and singers Roberta Sa and Lenine in attendance.

Gymnast Simone Biles, who won four gold medals and a bronze at the games, will carry the U.S. flag.

There will be a passing of the torch to Japan for the Tokyo Games in 2020. IOC President Thomas Bach is to reflect on the games, athletes will parade and there’s sure to be plenty of fireworks.

Like the opening ceremony, there will be massive images projected around the stadium.
