A Village in Bloom: Campo Maior

Today, I'm travelling to Campo Maior in the Alentejo region. My husband and in-laws were born here and it will be the 1st time our son gets to see the Festivities of the Flowers. It's a joy to watch!

Hoje vou de viagem até Campo Maior na região alentejana. O meu marido e os meus sogros nasceram aqui e vai ser a 1ª vez que o nosso filho vai ver a Festa das Flores. 
É um espéctaculo de ver!

A tradition with over a century, only held when the village people decide. Sometimes it doesn't take place for many years, so when it does, it's an incredible event. People from all over the country and Spain (Campo Maior is right next to Badajoz, Spain) come to see the streets decorated with paper flowers.

Uma tradição centenária, só realizada quando o povo da vila decide. Por vezes estão muito anos sem que se realize, por isso quando acontece é um acontecimento incrível. Gente de todo o País e de Espanha (Campo Maior fica muito perto de Badajoz em Espanha) 
vêm ver as ruas decoradas com flores de papel.


 During a whole year they work in secret creating paper flowers and a theme to decorate their street. One street doesn't know what the other will look like. On the previous night and dawn of the 1st day streets are decorated and 'unveiled' to receive all visitors.

As pessoas trabalham um ano inteiro em segredo a criar flores de papel e escolhem um tema para decorar a sua rua. Uma rua não sabe como vai ficar a outra. Na noite anterior e madrugada do 1º dia as ruas são decoradas pelos moradores e reveladas a todos os visitantes.

I'll be back on Saturday with many more amazing photos to show you!

Volto no Sábado com mais fotos fantásticas para vos mostrar!
