Argentines love to celebrate with fireworks. Since it is legal all year round, they will light up for someone’s birthday, wedding, or any kind of celebrations, amateur or professional alike. Get woken up by firework’s sound on a regular weekend is quite a normal thing. So this goes without saying that you will definitely see a LOT of fireworks going off everywhere in the city as it strikes midnight this New Year’s Eve.
Unlike many major cities in other parts of the world, there’s no one place in Buenos Aires where people gather to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. There’s also no one best spot in particular to see fireworks, in fact, any rooftop will do. If you don’t have any access to one of them, go to somewhere wide open like Puerto Madero or the big parks/plazas in Palermo or Recoleta. You can also buy your own to join in the fun. If you choose the latter, please apply all precautions, pay attention to your surroundings and play safely.
Wherever you are spending your NYE, have a fabulous one and Feliz Año Nuevo! ¡¡Nos vemos en 2012!!
