The Lusito Land Festival started as a project to aid differently abled individuals in the Portuguese community in the Johannesburg area. This year it marks its 36th annual event with the celebration having grown to include the various diverse cultures mixed with the Portuguese heritage found in the surrounding areas of Gauteng. With a new venue and the classic Portuguese entertainment, this is sure to be one for the books.
