Pre-Carnival (Prévias) 2013 in Olinda: Pitombeira

By November 12, 2012

Just like a new day, every Carnival season needs its early birds, and Pitombeira dos Quatro Cantos plays that role in Olinda's prévias.

Carnival 2013 has been warming up for a while at the headquarters for this beloved troça (pronounced TRAW-ssa), or Carnival organization.

Keep up with Pitombeira dos Quatro Cantos on their Facebook - all in Portuguese for sure, but with self-explanatory posters.

There's a rehearsal coming up on Nov.25 (they take place every two weeks). The headquarters is at Rua 27 de Janeiro 128, in the Carmo district.

The full Olinda Carnival 2013 program will be posted on the official Olinda Carnival Guide.
