Let’s kick off this summer with an experience of a lifetime. Like in Brazil, the Carnaval is a day of coming together and being with family and friends to celebrate the joy of life. From children to grandparents, this even is for everyone! Come experience the tradition that has been celebrated for decades in Brazil!
The Solstice Parade will be taking place on Saturday, June 20th, 2009. For 2 rehearsals and the costume to participate in the parade the cost is going to be $60.00 for adults and $35.00 for children. We are going to have a group of over 40 drummers coming to inspire some dancing and to fill the street with Bahian spirit!
We are going to have several guests, including the world renowned percussionist Mestre Amen Santo, professional dancers from Bahia, Prakantar, and Mariano’s Batucada School. It is our mission to bring the Axé of Bahia to the streets of Santa Barbara.
