Brazil has been getting all the good gigs lately.
It got this past World Cup (even though the team was brutalized by the German squad, the nation still reaped in the bucks) and are looking forward to hosting the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. And now, for the third year in the row, Brazilians are planning to take over Pomapano Beach for a massive celebration of their homeland. And it's not surprising, seeing how Pompano and Deerfield Beach have large communities of the country's expats.
This festival is as much an ambassador of the culture as it is a celebration of roots for Broward's large Brazilian contingent; it is an opportunity to explore the finest the large South American nation has to offer. And Brazil has plenty, from mouth-watering feijoadas to risqué and fun Carnaval dancers. This is the same country that gave the world Marcel Camus' classic Orfeu Negro and Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund's gripping Cidade de Deus.
