Today is the day – the 'Brazilian Day in L.A.'

Founded and sponsored by the Consulate General of Brazil in Los Angeles, the Brazilian Day in L.A. is back at the Hancock Park (La Brea Tar Pits) once again.

This year, the event is teaming up with the Brazilian Street Carnaval of Long Beach to put on what will be the biggest and best Brazilian Day yet!

There will be music from local Brazilian groups, dancing and, obviously, traditional food like rice and beans, coxinha (chicken croquette), risoli (beef croquette), kibe (bulgar wheat and beef fritter) and, of course, the typical churrasco, a plethora of barbecue meats.

From noon to 6PM, the annual event is open to the public (admission is free) and is a great place for singles, families, and everyone who enjoys having a great time – Brazilian style!
