Palmeirinhos celebrating Carnival in Palmerston North
Last week about 60 members of the Brazilian community in PN and members of the wider community enthralled us all with a parade around Te Marae o Hine /The Square with their puppets, music and dancing.
Carnaval is the most popular event in Brazil and everyone is welcome to celebrate it. It is used in our community as a chance to help keep the Brazilian culture and language alive, and especially as a chance for the children to keep a connection to their culture.
