:: Carnival


Carnival is not a great party in Belo Horizonte. Till some 40 years ago, people danced and played on streets, but since then, most and really most, of the population travel during these holidays to beaches or other places to play carnival. Recently, some “blocos” (groups of people dressed in costumes, or not) playing music gather people in squares to celebrate carnival. Shops hope to sell masks, hats, etc.

O carnaval não é uma grande festa em BH. Até uns 40 anos atrás, as pessoas dançavam e brincavam nas ruas, mas desde então grande parte da população viaja durantes os feriados para praias ou outras cidades para brincar. Ultimamente, alguns blocos tocando músicas atrai gente para as praças para brincar. As lojas esperam vender máscaras, chapéus, etc.
