During our visit to the Bahia Resort Hotel we had an evening of fun at the 2nd Annual Brazilian Carnaval!  

Talk about amazing entertainment and food! Every Thursday night during the summer the Bahia hosts a Brazilian Carnaval on their private beach located on Mission Bay. The Samba music and colorful exotic dancing transported us to a night in Brazil! While we enjoyed the party we enjoyed an all-you-can-eat beach barbecue!

The evening started off with their signature cocktail and mocktail which the girls and I all enjoyed!

And I also caught The Little One joining in on the fun! Moments after this they invited all the kids to come on stage and dance with the dancers! She is still talking about how fun it was!
