In the Argentinean capital, representatives of various diasporas gathered for a unique festival, demonstrating their national cultures and cuisines. A wonderful parade took place through the city streets, featuring national costumes with symbols from each continent and country, followed by a superb concert and a festival of local culinary skills.
Buenos Aires traditionally organises such events and, with support from the Belarusian Embassy to Argentina, a Belarusian diaspora took part for the first time. The gala-concert also featured a Belarusian show: the Raduga (Rainbow) dance ensemble performed our national folk dances. In addition, an exhibition of Belarusian crafts and books about our country was organised. Guests to the pavilion were even able to sample Belarusian national cuisine.
