THE sights, sounds and tastes of Brazil are heading to Scarborough Beach.
Brazilian dancers, musicians and food trucks will hit the coast for the inaugural Brazilian Beach Carnaval on March 2.
SambOzzy director Nunzio Moskito said the event would feature performances from drumming group Maracatu Nacao Martelo, Sambrazil and Esplendor do Samba dancers, children’s entertainment, and a capoeira demonstration by Capoeira Muzenza Perth.
The Unique Beauty Style team will provide free face and body painting, along with hair and make-up application for adults throughout the day.
Mr Moskito said Scarborough was the ideal venue for the cultural celebration, which aimed to appeal to locals and Brazilian ex-pats.
“It’s a beautiful location and there’s a very strong Brazilian community in Scarborough,” he said.
From noon to 8pm, traditional Brazilian music will fill the air and people can taste the flavours of South America from food trucks.
There will also be beach games, including soccer and volleyball, and when the sun sets, the amphitheatre will transform into a dance and music spectacular, with everyone invited to take to the dance floor.
