The world famous Brazilica festival has returned to Liverpool for it’s 10th year, bringing Samba rhythms and spectacular colourful outfits to the streets and venues of Liverpool.
It runs for 3 days and encompasses many aspects of Brazilian culture encompassing music, dance and even movies.
On Friday night I went along to the Carnival Queen competition held at Revolucion de Cuba in Albert Dock which featured a half hour set of music from Aleh Ferreira to get everyone in the party mood.
Saturday night is of course all about the big parade, which makes it’s way from Abercromby Square to Williamson Square. I caught it at Hardman Street near the bombed out church.
Wakening to the sound of rain this morning I feared tonight could have been a soggy one, but fortunately it turned out to be dry and warm.
Here are just a few of the visual highlights.
A great weekend of sights and sounds, and yet another spectacular event in the Liverpool calendar!
