    Carnaval 2006 features the theme
     Land of Childhood Dreams,
     a world where all dreams are possible.

    Fogomorphosis of the Monarch
     This year's theme subliminally honors Fogo Na Roupa's community members who have passed, but more directly focuses on the transformation that accompanies death, symbolized by Nana and the Monarch butterfly.

    Of those to whom this year's contingent pays tribute are the late Icelya Hernandez, daughter of Carnaval pioneer, director and number one promoter, Roberto Hernandez; Kip Farris, director of Batu Pitu and long-time Fogo member, master craftsman and engineer of endless Carnaval floats; Patricia Vattuone, a dynamic warrior, dancer, mother of four, and activist; and Gyasi Ramos, a young artist who dedicated energies and boundless creativity to the manifestation of Fogo's 2005 award winning Spirit Tracker float.
    Marra Reggae 2006:
    Each one of us is born into this world with a divine mission.  The soul is the inner fire that gives us warmth both to our worlds and to our hearts.  It is a creative power, a passion and a guiding force.  Our presentation honors the "Sacred Fire" in all of us and the passions and dreams of our childhood.
