It's July 2015 and I know that most are wondering how credible are the rumors that are being circulated, regarding our annual event of the cleansing of the street that takes place on the Brazilian Day weekend. As a result of some unfortunate incidents, LAVAGEM as we all know it will not be taking place this year; however, I have great News to share with you. Behind every dark cloud, there is a SILVER LINING.
We have been working very hard on a scaled down version of the LAVAGEM. Thanks to Marta Moreno Vega and the Caribbean Cultural Center who made this entire event possible. This event will be taking place at the LINCOLN CENTER Outdoor Plaza on August, 2, 2015 at 7 PM. Please come out and experience the same excitement and camaraderie that we have shared throughout the years, in promoting the culture that we all embrace and value highly.
