Yet another holiday is about to arrive in Itacaré and the town is preparing for events, concerts and loads of celebration.
The 12th of October is known as Brazilian Children’s Day or dia das criancas in Portuguese. This year It happens to fall on the same day as the country’s Patron Saint day, which is a holiday as well. On this special day parents usually give their kids gifts and there are various activities in the schools to celebrate the occasion.
But the celebrations don’t stop there. On Saturday the 13th of October there will be a live outdoor concert held at Ribeira beach – the last one of Itacaré’s famous Four Beaches.
The concert, a tribute to Bob Marley, will host Itacaré’s favorite band Ethiopia Federation who will be followed by DJ Banzai, DJ Wolverine and DJ Duroc for music until the sun rises.
“As an opening of the October holidays, the sound of Reggae will reach Itacaré in a big tribute to the king himself, Bob Marley. His songs will be performed by great Reggae artists and it will surely be an event that one should not miss!” say the organizers of the event.
The following night, Sunday the 14th, the party will continue on Concha beach. At Cabana 17.00 at Corais there will be a big party with music and dancing for every taste including samba, forro and electronic DJ-ing.
