If you are in Helsinki or in Europe in June then there is one thing which you should not miss – Helsinki Samba Festival. I am sure everybody here is well aware of the Brazil originated Samba dance which involves skimpily dressed ladies dancing to the rhythms. I attended Samba Carnaval way back in 2011 when I was in Helsinki and enjoyed every bit of it. Several groups are formed of dancers and they perform on various themes.
Dancing To The Tune
The Feather Lady
Little Miss Perfect
That’s Me With The Samba Dancer
It is really a celebration of summer and colors where a procession is taken out on the streets of Helsinki and dancers move to the tune of the song. It was so overwhelming to see even kids and senior people participating.

The Children’s Dance
King And Queen Themed Dance
People On The Street Enjoying The Dance
And this is what I wore for the Samba Carnaval, simple and comfy summer dress paired with my white jelly shoes.
Happy to get a green feather from the dancers
