"Viva Brasil!" - The 2009 Brazilian Day Festival

Today is the 25th Annual Brazilian Day Festival in New York. Brazilians living in the New York area converged on 6th Avenue ad 46th Street for a special event of music, dancing, food and fun. In 1984 the City of New York proclaimed the first Sunday in September as the day in which it celebrates Brazilian Independence from Portugal, which took place on September 7th, 1822.
