Brazilian Day festival at La Brea Tar Pits

September 9, 2011 |  1:44 pm


The 14th annual Brazilian Street Carnaval and the seventh annual Brazilian Day in Los Angeles have joined forces to create a festival that celebrates everything Brazilian. The festivities will take place Saturday at the La Brea Tar Pits from noon to 6 p.m. (and the best part, it's free).

There will be music from local Brazilian groups, dancing and, of course, food. You will be able to savor traditional fried snacks like coxinha (chicken croquette), risoli (beef croquette) or kibi (bulgar wheat and beef fritter). Silvio's BBQ and other vendors will be offering churrasco, a plethora of barbecue meats, rice and beans. The highlight of the event is a  Rio-style Carnaval parade presented by SambaL√° Samba School of Long Beach.
