Portuguese Dual Language Immersion Students Come Together to Celebrate Festa Junina

There was lots of colorful clothing, dancing, games, and smiles all around as students in the Portuguese Dual Language Immersion program all came together to celebrate what is called Fest Junina or the June Festival. It is a vibrant celebration that lights up Brazil during the months of June and July.

At Riverton High School the celebration lit up the gymnasium and it was a big party for everyone to enjoy, honoring Brazil’s diverse heritage. Local Brazilian restaurants participated as well, giving everyone a true taste of Brazil. Square dancing, or quadrilha, was also a highlight of the fun and energetic festival.

Thanks to the Portuguese DLI teachers, DLI students, and members of the community for giving everyone the opportunity to experience such a fun, vibrant, and beautiful culture!
