The first annual Brazil Says Thanks Festival wrapped up Saturday evening with music and comedy and lots of coats and blankets. As Country 90 Proof took the stage at the Cow Palace at Forest Park a small crowd huddled to enjoy the music. During the break before Donnie Baker's performance at 8 p.m. comedians Joey Carroll and Jim McCue returned for another round of fun and greetings for all those who came to see Donnie Baker's performance and say "Thanks" to all the veterans who have served. The highlight of the night was when a member of the crowd came dressed up like Donnie's long-lost brother and the duo went onstage to do a first'ever Facebook LIVE from Brazil, Indiana on Bakers' and the Brazil Says Thanks Facebook pages.
