Olinda’s Giant Doll Race

In accordance with my increase in Olinda (and Carnival) posts, here’s one more. This time, it’s on Olinda’s Giant Doll Race which will take place tomorrow, Saturday, February 22nd.


The race has been going on since 2005, as a way of honoring and awarding those who dress up as giant dolls and bring delight to the sloping streets of the historic center of Olinda. This Saturday, the 9th edition will occur, concentrating at 8am at the Ribeira Market, where breakfast and a frevo orquestra will be on offer. The race starts at 10am and will go from the market to Olinda’s city hall. – See more here (PT)
