If you have ever wanted to dance in the streets of Winnipeg, here’s your chance to do so without getting hit by a car.

Bannatyne Avenue, between Rorie Street and Waterfront Drive in the East Exchange District, is the place to be on Friday and Saturday for the second annual Brazilian Carnaval.

The street festival will showcase the South American region of Winnipeg that has made its home in the East Exchange.

The Carnaval, free for all ages, will feature live Brazilian/Caribbean style music beginning at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. on Saturday. Festivities will wrap up around 11 p.m. both nights.

The headlining musician Thiago Corrêa is coming to Winnipeg from Brazil. Also performing will be local musicians such as Combo Latino, Paradize Band and Marco Castill. There will be samba dance performances and zumba classes.

Several Bannatyne Avenue restaurants including Hermanos Restaurant & Wine Bar, Corrientes Argentine Pizzeria and Carnaval Brazilian BBQ will be offering offering patio dining in addition to food trucks.
