We stumbled upon this gem on a Sunday afternoon. The main street going into Sarmiento Park was closed off, and there were performances of music/dance.
There was a spectator stand at one end, but most people were just chilling on the grass, half-watching and half-doing their own thing.. drinking mate, talking to each other, kids running around, etc. I love how much fun everyone was having.
I would also like to point out that NOBODY was on their phone (well minus the three girls who did take a selfie.. but just ONE). Try to take a photo of the audience of any festivity in the US, and there will at least be a few people holding out their phones. 🙂
This foam game was intriguing. I don’t know if it happened at intermission, or just whenever anyone damn well pleased.. but someone would start spraying someone else with a can of foam, and then soon enough it becomes a full on foam battle.. and then they disperse again and performances ensue. Sometimes they would be simultaneous. There was probably no pattern to it, but my nerd self could not stop trying to figure it out. 🙂 Kids and grownups all participated. I was a pansy and did not. It sure looked like fun / cooling on a hot summer day.
Later on, some larger scale performance groups showed up. Most performers were young people, presumably college students from the billion uni’s nearby.
As sun starts to set, things were just getting started! P.S., string lights make everything better.
