Nighttime Art Market and Dinning Spot: The Place to Start the Night
In Reviver you find several stalls offering a huge variety of regional specialities and sweets (yummy cakes made from coconut, cashew nuts, chocolate and different local fruit) to get the energy needed for a long coming night!! :))
Besides, there are quite a few stalls offering creations of local artists: ornamental jewellery, some extra pieces of clothes, bags, paintings... Perhaps an idea for a nice souvenir?
It all started around 6 p.m. and this definitely is the spot to start the night!!

Tambor de Crioula
If you are lucky you may come across the performance of Tambor de Crioula, one of the most popular rituals of Afro-Brazilian culture of Maranhao. It's a celebration based on music and dance.
more in the Local Customs
I attended their performance on a little square, Praca Merechal Machado. It all started at 6pm and continued through the night. As the things can always change, you better ask for the latest info in your hotel or one of the locals.

Don't Miss a Friday Night - It's a Blast!!!
Sao Luis gets the biggest parties during Bumba-meu-boi and Carnaval. But if you can not make it, then plan at least to be there at the end of the week. You have to experience a Friday night. It is something you will never forget!!!
There are tables in the streets outside the bars and live music in every corner till the wee hours. The groups are not playing only reggae but also other traditional music styles. Crowds of people are dancing, drinking beer or caipirinha... in any case, having a good time! You might be interested in knowing that reggae over there is sort of like a slow dance version of forro and it's a couples'dance.
