BRAZIL might be coming to the small screen in the form of the Olympics next month, but locals will not have to wait that long to enjoy a celebration Rio-style.

The Creatures Community Carnivàle Freo de Janeiro event will combine a party atmosphere with arts, music, dancing, a celebration of the city and raising awareness for the work of Fremantle Foundation and their Impact100 program.

Little Creatures community and marketing co-ordinator Claire O’Byrne said the Creatures’ Community Carnivàle was a way for them to give back.

“This year’s Impact 100 submissions are centred around ‘creating a culture of connectivity’ in Fremantle and we thought we could honour this vision by throwing a Community Carnivàle that will connect and inspire the people of Fremantle,” she said.

“It will be a day of fun and frivolity that will inspire community spirit and raise awareness for some deserving but lesser known not-for-profits.”

Fremantle Foundation executive officer Dylan Smith said it was fantastic that local businesses were behind their cause.

“It is a real bonus to be chosen by Little Creatures for the Freo de Janeiro and a great opportunity to reach many more generous Freo people,” he said.

“I love the way Freo businesses are embracing the strong social justice values in our community.

Freo de Janeiro is on July 30 from noon at the Little Creatures Brewery.
