Come and Tango on the World`s Biggest Port Festival: BUENOS AIRES is Partner of the HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY 2014


HAMBURG, Germany, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 celebrating this weekend its 825th HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY - the world`s biggest port festival. 1,5 Million visitors will party from May 9 to 11 in Europe`s second biggest port with maritime events, ship-parades with more than 300 vessels, a tug-boat-ballet and lots of music.

One highlight this year is going to be the partnership with Buenos Aires. The HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY re-creates the pulsating atmosphere of the Argentine capital at the BUENOS AIRES Argentina Festival at Kehrwiederspitze and will feature seductive dances by world-tango-champions, Argentine culinary-specialities, virtual-walks in Buenos Aires, a photo-exhibition on the historic ship Cap San Diego, and a spectacular show at the Planetarium-Hamburg. The city will take centre-stage for the celebration in Hamburg and brings some South American feelings to the River Elbe.

The BUENOS AIRES Argentina festival offers a wide range of program for visitors, showing them more about the lifestyle and culture of Argentina and its capital city. The tango will of course play a major part: The reigning world tango champions Maximiliano Cristiani and Jésica Arfenoni will demonstrate some of their skills, and hold workshops to initiate interested hobby dancers to the secrets of their art.

The official opening of the BUENOS AIRES Argentina Festival will be on Friday, 9 May  with a high-ranking government delegates from Buenos Aires, headed by the Minister for Urban Development Daniel Chain. He and the Hamburg Minister for Economics Frank Horch will start the festival by ringing an ancient ship´s bell on board of the sailing vessel "Rickmer Rickmers". The two port cities will also make use of the HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY for talks on expanding their mutual trading and business relations and concerning cooperation in tourism and culture.
