Hope you’re all well.
I wanted to let you know that the second annual Boston Portuguese Festival
2019 is taking place on June 23rd at City Hall Plaza, Boston from 12pm
to 8pm. This is a huge event to celebrate our Portuguese culture and
heritage. Our very own cousin Rui Domingos is heading up the committee to
make this happen and he’s doing a fantastic job. It’s a huge job!! It
takes the effort of many people to make this a successful event and we
thank Rui for taking this on. We’re very proud!!
There’s going to be great entertainment all afternoon from bands to
ranchos; there are fun activities for children; there is great food and
drink; Portuguese things for sale; Revolution soccer players will be there;
the flag raising will take place around 2pm….and much, much more. ***
Please check out the attached flyer.
We hope you all come out to have fun and enjoy this great event and at the
same time help us continue to showcase our Portuguese culture and
We are looking for volunteers so if you want to help us even if for a
couple of hours (or the whole time) let me know. We need all the help we
can get…bring your friends. If your kids need community service hours I’ll
sign them up and sign their form.
The committee to make this event happen also has to raise funds (things
don’t happen magically )…..so if you’d like to send a donation to the BPF
please do so at www.bostonportuguesefestival.org
Every little bit helps and you will be supporting the continuation of our
great and very old (840 years to be exact) culture. Thank you!!!
Muito obrigada a todos!! See you all on Sunday, June 23rd to celebrate
