Festa Junina at the Tamanudá Farm

From June to July, the sertão of the Northeast gets dressed up with streamers, bonfires and fairs that take on the streets and churches of the agreste of Paraíba. And of course, one of the most traditional festivities in Brazil could not be left out of the Tamanduá Farm celebration schedule! Brought to Brazil by the Portuguese in colonial times, the party had a religious undertone in honor of saints like St. John and St. Anthony. Over time, it became a festival that is more popular than religious, and symbols of rural areas were incorporated into the festivities.
