Skirts and Caps Fly as Santarem Dancers Spin and Whirl Dressed as campinos, or Portuguese cowboys, these young sters perform at the annual Fair of the Ribatejo, a prairie region along the Tagus River. Campino costumes retain 18th-century style - tight fitting breeches, red-flannel waistcoats, cummerbund like faixas, and green caps called barretesverdes or cara pugas. Sometimes campinos dance with half-full glasses of wine atop their heads, never spilling a drop.
