Parintins Folklore Festival - Brazil

This festival is held in the state of Amazonas and is the second-largest annual festival in the country (the largest being Carnival). It is held over three days during late June and celebrates a legend about an ox that was resuscitated.

Two teams compete in telling long versions of the tale, using song, dance and costumes to rival their competitors. Each show lasts for about 2.5 hours. The Amazonian cultures are brought into the shows, keeping them alive and relevant to the locals.
