Once more a hit! BR Day really rocked 6th Avenue this year!

The largest Brazilian event outside of Brazil, Brazilian Day 
#BRDayNYC celebrated a milestone, its 30th anniversary. More then a million people took over 25 New York blocks in the heart of Manhattan at Little Brazil street. Between samba dancers and a lot of kiosks and stands selling typical Brazilian food, clothing and art on the street you could listen the best of Brazilian music with a special anniversary line up. 

One of the greatest advantages of living in New York is its hallmark: the mish-mash of multiple cultures. A great experience to explore the real Brazilian culture for sure is this mind blowing festival which stretched from 5th to 7th avenue on 46th street and from 43rd to central park on 6th avenue. 

The actor Cauã Reymond, who has become internationally known for his success in Globo’s telenovela ‘Brazil Avenue’, was the host of this big party. The reality television coach of The Voice Brasil, Daniel brought his very own sertanejo rhythm to the event sharing the stage with his special guest and also The Voice Brasil coach Carlinhos Brown.

To close the BR Day with golden keys, the Latin Grammy Award-winning, songwriter and one of the most popular Brazilian female singers, Ivete Sangalo performed the grand finale celebrating her 20th career anniversaryCharismatic, candid and ferociously gifted, the outrageous Ivete with her guests Saulo Fernandes and Tiago Abravanel nailed it and took fans into frenzy even in the middle of flood.

For sure, Brazilians proved one more time that they truly know how to have fun, in the sun or in the middle of the flood jumping and singing all Ivete’s greatest hits. #BrazilianWayOfLife #LikeaBrazilian

This is according to official information from NYPD for Brazilian Day 2012.
