Festa Junina

July 4, 2009

While we missed the American-style Fourth of July with the fireworks and barbecue, it’s the Festa Junina today.  Apparently this is a much bigger holiday up in the northeast, but in Rio, we had a little street fair on our block.  They took a while to set up, and early this afternoon we saw employees from the local restaurants carrying over trays of little cakes and sweets, setting up plastic champagne cups, hanging streamers, checking the lighting.  It was pretty empty then, and a little drizzly.  We went back a few minutes ago and it was packed.
