The cultural festival “Perú Vive”, whose fifth edition was held last weekend in the city of La Plata, Argentina, broke the record of participation, with 60,000 attendees compared to 35,000 the previous year.
“The participants packed the central square of Moreno, according to the attendance data provided by the Municipality and by the Consulate General of Peru in this Argentine city, promoter of the festival”, informed Gestión.
This festival, recognized as an event of tourist interest by the Province of Buenos Aires, offered Peruvian products, gastronomy, music, dance, and attractions, organized by the Consulate General of Peru in La Plata in collaboration with the Peruvian community and the Municipality.
“The consul general of Peru in La Plata, the diplomat Noela Pantoja, said that with this new edition of the festival it was demonstrated that ‘Peruvian associations can respond to great challenges’”, according to the information from Gestión.
“Perú Vive” showed in two days the rich culture and multiversity of rhythms, colors and dances as well as the strength of the country in its various products and in its people. It also strengthened the bonds of friendship between Peru and Argentina, according to Pantoja.
