Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

Place : Sesimbra

Region: Municipality-Sesimbra / Parish-Santiago

Theme: Parade of Clowns (carnival)

Clown parade in Sesimbra, Carnival of 2009

This is one of the biggest non-professional clown concentrations in the world. Enjoy the Carnival parade in Sesimbra , one week of non-stop partying and sun.
Sesimbra is a place where the Carnival has a lot of tradition and like in many other places in Portugal, it’s nowadays very influenced by the Brazilian Carnival. And this is not strange has Portugal and Brazil share a common history, traditions and language. Also, with the coming of Brazilian emigrants to Portugal the Samba arrived with them and soon many local cultural associations adopted the joy of this dance in their festivities!

"... rested on Wednesday, after the carnival and one day after starting to think and work for the next year ..."
Translated version automatically!
The program begins with the parades of schools of the county, the 6th Sunday, leaving on Saturday for the street the female group "Mijona Trip" and on Monday, the Parade of Clowns - fills the village of color and joy.

On Ash Wednesday, the funeral of Cod marks the culmination of a period of revelry.

During these days the Cegadas cover some of the villages with their satirical criticism always tested.

Sesimbra live the Carnival 24 hours a day, with joy, color, animation and a great art of hospitality that attracts thousands of tourists every year.

I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
