Brazilian Day

In this episode of Fest-a-Nation you’ll join the parade on 6th Avenue in midtown for one of Manhattan’s liveliest street fests. Along with about 1.5 million revelers, host Emma Green checks out the ritualistic cleansing of the street, capoeira, fresh sugarcane juice and other cultural icons of Brazil. Hit the streets, tents and pavilions with Emma as she eats, drinks and dances her way through festivals that celebrate and preserve international cultures far from home. The self-described “Martha Stewart meets MacGyver of all things food, wine and travel,” Emma Green asks the questions you would ask if you were there and gets the answers with her ever-present smile.
