If you enjoy costume parties, face painting, Latin American music and dance, and a good time, you’ll want to listen up! This February 2nd at Austin’s own Palmer Event Center there will be a Carnaval celebration. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Carnaval, here is a brief history:
Austinites who are interested in participation can refer to this website for more information including, locations, hours, and ticket price. http://sambaparty.com/
DISCLAIMER: Girls below the age of 18 should seek the approval of their parents before attending.
-Alcoholic beverages will be available to those 21 and up.
-Traditional Carnaval costumes may expose a lot of skin.
Though teens often accompany their parents to this event, if either of these circumstances makes you or your parents uncomfortable, consider having your own samba party at home.
For you Latinitas who do not live in Austin, check to see if you have a local Carnaval celebration in your city. If you don’t here are some samples of the music and dance you might see. Enjoy!
Have a great week,
