Tango Festival y Mundial de Baile 2009
Today begins the Buenos Aires Tango Festival, with free classes and shows around the city and in the old Harrod's building downtown on Calle Florida. There will also be lots of vendors so you can do your one-stop tango shopping there as well.
The Festival will end with the World Championship Finals in Luna Park.
Even if you don't dance, it's a great place for people-watching!
(The truth is that the milongueros of Buenos Aires don't pay attention in the slightest to these kinds of events and just continue dancing as usual at their regular favorite milongas. It's a great tourist attraction, though, and that's why the government puts it on every year.)
