On Saturday, April 14, 2012, Batucaxé delivers twice the fun and joy by bringing Carnaval festivities to two (that’s right, TWO) venues in downtown Tucson. Wear your Carnaval costume, beads, glitter, feathers and dress in PURPLE, then join us in the afternoon and again in the evening for the best Carnaval-style parades in Tucson!
