Yes, it is that time of year again in Blumenau, Santa Catarina, Brazil. Oktoberfest. And every year it gets bigger and bigger.
Blumenau is nestled in the Itajai Valley and is a perfect place to party for the better part of two weeks. Beer flows freely (literally) and everyone has a smile on their face.
There are several pavilions with all kinds of music, but the Oom pah pah kind is the best. Polka, polka, polka.
Although I’ve never visited Blumenau during the Oktoberfest, I have been there numerous other times and it is a great city next to the Itajai River, nestled between the mountains.
If you are ever in southern Brazil, Blumenau should definitely be on your list of places to see.
In Blumenau, all year round, alles gut, alles blau (everything good and everything blue).
