Argentina celebrates its Independence Day, or 9 de Julio, on Tuesday, July 9. Festivities, including parades, concerts, and fireworks, are expected throughout the country and especially in Buenos Aires. A parade is planned in Buenos Aires on Avenida del Libertador with road closures in Recoleta and Palermo in effect from 08:00 to 15:00 (local time). Other related disruptions and heightened security measures are likely. Tuesday is observed as a public holiday and government and business closures are expected.
Argentina declared its independence from Spain on July 9, 1816, with the formation of the United Provinces of South America.
Individuals in Argentina, and Buenos Aires particularly, are advised to monitor the situation, respect local customs, anticipate a heightened security presence, large crowds, and disruptions to transportation, business, and government services.
