La Comunidad Paraguaya / The Paraguay Community

El sábado 12 de Mayo tuvo lugar una nueva edición del "Buenos Aires Celebra", y en ocasión de los 202 años de la Independencia del Paraguay, la Avenida de Mayo se tiñó de azul, blanco y rojo. Se cortaron 3 cuadras de la tradicional avenida y se armaron carpas en las que se podía deleitar uno probando platos tradicionales de Paraguay, mientras grupos de danza y canto creaban el ambiente de la tarde.

Last Saturday, 12th of May, a new edition of the "Buenos Aires Celebra" festival took place, and this time it was focused around Paraguay and its 202nd anniversary of independence. Avenida de Mayo turned blue, white and red as the Paraguayan flag. 3 blocks of this traditional street were cut off to traffic and tents were pitched up in which one could indulge into traditional dishes from our neighboring country. But not only food was available. Typical dancing and singing were also on the agenda for the day.
