These festivities are generally held seven weeks following Easter in several cities of Brazil. During the festival days, the streets are decorated with colorful flags and residents dress in typical costumes. The festival's main attractions include the maypole procession, where the maypole is carried to the church, and the coronation of the emperor and empress of Divino. In addition, there are folk dance performances and the famous "pousada", where residents homes are opened to welcome visitors with typical food and lots of joy.
