Overview of festivals and celebrations in Brazil
During Easter week, Rio de Janeiro hosts a magnificent carnival. Thus, multi-colored Rio blossoms even more thanks to dancers in gorgeous costumes, skillful drummers, masquerade balls - and the audience is invited to join. Easter eggs are always chocolate, local shops are full of their varieties. October 7 marks the Independence Day, and Republic Day of Brazil is celebrated on November 15 . On this day, in 1889, Brazil was proclaimed as a republic. On November 15, military orchestras march across the country in honor of such an important event. Surprisingly, Brazil has its own Oktoberfest - and not one. The festival takes place in the city of Blumenau, a former German colony, and offers a unique blend of Brazilian and German cultures, music, and cuisines. Another Oktoberfest is held in Santa Cruz do Sul, a city founded by German immigrants.
