São João - Fortaleza - July 11, 2011

  1. 1. July 11, 2011 São João - Fortaleza
  2. 2. Festa Junina (June Festival), also known as festa de São João for their part in celebrating the nativity of St. John the Baptist, are the annual Brazilian celebrations historically related to European Midsummer that take place in the beginning of the Brazilian winter. These festivities, which were introduced by the Portuguese during the colonial period (1500-1822), are celebrated nationwide but are particularly associated with Northeastern Brazil .
  3. 5. São João coincides with the corn harvest . Special dishes served during São João are made with corn, such as canjica , pamonha and brazilian cuscuz . Dishes may also include peanuts, potatoes, sausages and rice. The celebrations are very colorful and festive and include amazing pyrotechnics .
  4. 9. Men dress up as farm boys with large straw hats and women wear pigtails, freckles, painted gap teeth and red-checkered dresses, all in a loving tribute to the origins of Brazilian country music. However, nowadays, São João festivities are extremely popular in all urban areas and among all social classes. In the Northeast, they are as popular as Carnival. Like during Carnival , these festivities involve costume-wearing (in this case, peasant costumes), dancing , drinking , and visual spectacles ( fireworks display and folk dancing).
