On Independence Day, this Wednesday, July 20, a series of activities will be carried out according to the holiday in different cities of the country. Various artists will be performing as part of the cultural agenda that MinCultura has proposed.

The traditional military parade will be taking place this time between 170th and 116th streets on the western side of Boyacá Avenue from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., as reported by Movilidad Bogotá a few days ago to the Bogotanos.

But in addition to this, both the Colombian capital and other main cities will have activities to celebrate the 212 years of the cry of independence. In the case of Bogotá, a concert will take place from 6:00 pm at the Jorge Eliecer Gaitán Theater, where attendees will be able to see artists such as Katie James, Camilo Colmenares, Superlitio, the Embera Chamí Philharmonic, among other important musicians.

Bucaramanga for its part is preparing to enjoy the music of Lucio Feuillet, Santiago Cruz and the Lebrija School of Music. Buenaventura will have live the Grupo Niche, the Bahía de la Cruz group, Primo Hernández School, among others.

Remember, if you live in Bogotá, the route through which the parade will be passing will be closed from 5 in the morning on Wednesday, so it is recommended that you take into account other alternative routes to get around the city. However, there will be a controlled passage for residents of the areas that will have restrictions.

Also, the neighborhood July 20 prepared a very particular parade of old cars, which will start from 1:00 pm through some streets of the neighborhood to the well-known square of July 20, as invited by the local Mayor’s Office of San Cristóbal.
