As one who lives one block from Deerfield Beach where the festival is...I would highly suggest that it is not held there. Besides the traffic which was out of control...there was very little police presence last year which totally affect the neighborhood. At one point, a gang fight erupted by the parking garage...again..no police around when it happened. If the budget is cut...this one item I would hate to see tax payer money wasted on because this year if they do have it on the beach...there needs to be a much bigger police presence.

We had this event for 4 consecutive years and the Brazilian Community is getting biger and bigger in the Deerfield Beach and Broward Area.It was a beatiful event very organized, for families, children and all the brazilian cultural lovers.Last year we had 30.000 people on two days event. We know that the event is a major festival now and we need more space.And by the way this Fernando De Sousa it's not the responsible for the brazilian Festival just ask the city manager and the parks and recreation staff (Deerfield beach) he was a volunter in the beer booth in the first year that's all he knows nothing about the Festival.

AS A RESIDENT , IHAVE TO SAY NO TO THE BRAZILIAN FEST. I HAVE WITNESSED THE DRUGS AND GANG ACTIVITY FIRST HAND. THESE PEOPOLE ARE DIRTY, RUDE , AND DISRESPECTFULL OF THE AMERICAN CULTURE. THEY FLY THEIR BRAZILIAN FLAG AND SNUB THE AMERICAN FLAG. THE WOMAN ARE TRASH AS WELL. ITS TIME FOR THIS FESTIVAL TO END IN DEERFILED BEACH, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT BUDGET CUTS ARE LOOMING ON THE HORIZON. ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME THAT A MURDER WILL OCCUR AND DEEFIELD DOESNT NEED THE BLOOD ON ITS HANDS. SAY NO TH THE BRAZILIAN FEST. DEERFIELD IS A CLEAN AND WHOLESOME PLACE TO LIVE. WE DONT NEED THIS TRASH!!

As long as they get rid of the mango fes--- Oh I mean the "founders day" festival also. Lets be fair now. Of course the blacks will probably riot if the city does that. And don't send in the K-9's!!!

Wow...so all Brazilian women/people are trash. That's a pretty harsh statement considering how much business they bring into Deerfield Beach. Deerfield Beach is full of no good people of all races. Plenty of trash people attend Founder's Day too or better known as Cracker Day. Deerfield Beach has a long history of racism and discrimnation. Don't get it twisted this festival being cut has nothing to do with budget dollars it is pure racism.

My fellow residents, I am not surprised that most of you would leave ignorant remarks over a festival full of fun, music and food. I've been at the festival every year since it started and we felt somewhat appreciated that THE ISLAND allowed us to express our culture. Fights? Violence? Bullshit!! Ask the police department for facts asshole!

Bottom line, you cancelled a fest that brought alot of people together for 2 days at the beach, reminding us of Rio De Janiero and home. Shit Cancel Chanuka and Passover and then you'll be doing everyone a favor, cancel Brazilian fest and you'll just be another ignorant bastard.How would you feel if 4th of july was canceled??

I am 100% Brasilero and theres no fucking way I will allow ignorant persecution try to make me feel inferior.

LEARN HOW TO SPEAK ENGLISH?!?!
