Archive for Brazilian June Festival

The Brazilian June Festival was a hit and fun and full tummies were had by all

On Saturday I attended the Brazilian June Festival with Mike at the Claremont Show Grounds and has an absolute ball of a time.

We arrived at the same time as Merv and Toni and my daughter Nikky arrived not long later and then the eating and drinking began.

First we watched the kids and then the adults show off some Capoeira which is like dancing martial arts and then we started the eating of everything edible and drinking a popular favourite soft drink called Guarana which is a grape tasting fizzy drink that’s delicious.

Around 1000 tickets were sold for the event with more tickets sold at the door and the number of Brazilians and people of all cultures was amazing.

It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and trying all the Brazilian delicacies such as Pastel’s that are either meat or cheese filled deep fried pastries and Coxinha’s which is similar to a chicken filled croquettes and tastes delectable. Everyone loved them so much that the lines were so long they went from one end of the pavilion to the other and then out the door so a lot of time was spent waiting in line to get more food.

By about 4 o’clock were were all stuffed and had no room for desert which I took home and had for desert another night.

It was definitely a great day and I loved hearing all the Brazilian music and seeing all my friends and cannot wait until next year so I can go again.

Excited for my weekend ahead and my home opens

Last weekend I was excited to go the the Brazilian June Festival with my family and we all had a great day.

It was definitely a fabulous day and one I enjoy every year and had my family together for the day which is always a special bonus, especially because Merv and Toni have moved out of my home and gone out on their own which I am happy for them but it has been nice having them around and luckily they haven’t moved too far so they can still come over for dinner.

Sunday will be business as usual for my home opens and maybe I will see you there!

Winter in the middle of June and the weather is still beautiful for my home opens

Although it’s cold in the mornings, I still go for my daily morning walks with my friend except now I am totally rugged up to keep the cold away but when the sun is shining it’s absolutely beautiful.

The weather has been very kind to me on the weekends for my home opens and as predicted by the weather man it will be again for this weekend.

Next weekend I am excited for the Brazilian June Festival and I have already sold my allotted tickets and have asked for more for those of you that are interested in coming… You will have a fantastic day.

Here is where I will be this weekend!
