The Peruvian Independence Day is a good reason to celebrate family and recognize the value of their own.Â Everything changed for Peru on July 28, 1821, when South American leader Jose de San Martin declared independence from Spain. A three-year struggle ensued, but Peru’s freedom was solidified in December of 1824, when Venezuelan Marshall Antonio Jose de Sucre defeated a Spanish army at Ayacucho and ended Spain’s South American rule.Â In South Florida, this celebration of Peruvian pride takes the form of the Peruvian Independence Day Festival. This annual event brings together the Peruvian-American community and the city at large for a weekend of music, dance, and art. Visitors groove to the infectious rhythms of merengue, salsa, and cumbia from live bands such as the Javier Mereno, Jr. Latin Band and Nando y su Banda Digital, along with the dance music that naturally emanates from fresh ceviche.Â General admission is $15.
