One of the most traditional festas juninas – traditional country festivals which brighten the city throughout June – is the one put on by the parish of Santo Antônio do Pari. In addition to the many hillbilly attractions at the festival's 99th outing this year, the celebration features a special programme that begins with a procession and ends with the assembly of a three-ton cake in homage to St. Anthony, the matchmaker saint. Getting yourself a piece of the cake really is a miracle – as you’ll see, there are a staggering number of ladies convinced that they need a bite if they ever want to get married.
