The Lavagem Cortejo in Lauro de Freitas is accompanied by the traditional wing of Bahia women humming and walking through the streets, capoeiristas and other cultural events from all over the city. It is also a tradition that every year an illustrious resident of the community receives the honor of being honored at the party.

Over the years, the population of Lagoa dos Patos has become increasingly involved in the preparation of the event with typical cultural activities in the municipality, such as the Afro Azânia group of the master of culture Aideê do Portão, Capoeira Beneficente Filhos de Oxóssi from Itinga, Semente do Povo Negro – Ipitanga , Corporal Expression from Vila Praiana, in addition to the Facetas and other artistic attractions.
