Filled with colour, dancing, and vibrancy, the Casa do Minho Portuguese Pavilion is in full swing during week one of Folklorama. 

"This is my first year being an ambassador but I've been doing Folklorama since I was six years old," says Maesha Costa the Adult Ambassador at the Casa do Minho Portuguese Pavilion. "I love it and honestly hope to be doing it til I'm 40."

Costa says the main word people use to describe her pavilion is lively.

"We have four main dance groups, the first is ages 5-12. The second is 12-16 and the third is 16-21 and the final group is more like the parents of the smaller kids group."

The Casa do Minho Portuguese Pavilion has events from July 31 until August 6 at 1080 Wall Street.
