Welcome to Festa Junina! Long-story-short, its Carnaval in the winter. Dia de São João on June 24th is the culmination but that doesn't prevent everyone from bonfiring, fireworking, forró-dancing and caipi-drinking every other night this week. For now, we'll keep it traditional. The apex of traditional Festa Junina is the Quadrilha. Country-line dancing with better costumes. They can be found everywhere but I'm starting in Imbassaí in Bahia state. Did I mention that this is Brazil?
