Mendoza, Argentina on Argentinian Independence Day

To break up my trip from Santiago, Chile to Buenos Aires, Argentina I made a quick stop for a few days in Mendoza (known for its wine production) and one of those days just happened to be Argentinian Independence Day. While their were no fireworks (our standard method of celebrating our Independence Day in the United States) there were fountains dyed the color of the flag, a celebratory gathering of vendors, and live performances from child dancers and professional musicians alike.

It was a pretty low-key celebration, but it was lovely. Check out the video below to see for yourself.

How do you celebrate Independence Day in your country?
