If you love cars, you can’t miss the 2nd Nuevo Vallarta Car Show taking place in the Riviera Nayarit on January 13-14, 2018, an event organized by the Wolfs Bugs Nuevo Vallarta club where over 300 exhibition-ready cars and motorcycles will be on display.
During a press conference on Wednesday event organizers Carlos Rodríguez and Jorge Medina, club president and vice-president, respectively, informed that over 300 vehicles will participate in this exhibition, which also sponsors a noble cause: the Asociación Civil Ángeles en Libertad, represented by Project Director Sofía de Vega.
Rocío Martínez, Tourism Director for Bahía de Banderas, added that the purpose of this activity is to promote camaraderie between car aficionados while providing the residents of Bahía de Banderas and visitors to the Riviera Nayarit with an alternate mode of entertainment.
The event is sponsored by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association, with the backing of the State of Nayarit through its Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
There are plans for a parade as well as the contest-exhibition that includes the participation of different types of vehicles divided into the following categories: Classic, Euro, Tuning (Modified), Custom (Personalized) and motorcycles.
“A passion for cars and participation will be rewarded, and those who comply with all the international criteria will receive a recognition handed out by well-known and prestigious judges,” said Carlos Rodríguez.
Participants are expected from Guadalajara, Celaya, Tepic, Bahía de Banderas and Puerto Vallarta. Judging will be international, led by specialists from the United States and Canada.
Activities for the 2nd Nuevo Vallarta Car Show begin on Saturday, January 13th with a car parade at 6 p.m. departing from the Bahía de Banderas Technological University (UTBB) and continuing down Nuevo Vallarta Boulevard to the Paseo de los Cocoteros, passing by Dreams Villamagna and concluding at Rocky’s restaurant-bar, located at the top of the Nuevo Vallarta Business Center, where car owners will enjoy a pleasant get together.
On Sunday the 14th events start at 8 a.m. with the arrival of the motorized vehicles into the Nuevo Vallarta Business Center’s parking lot for the exhibition. Evaluations will be performed at 11 a.m. and the awards ceremony will take place around 2 p.m., ending around 5 p.m.
Among the novelties this year is the unveiling of an automobile modified by Martín Vaca, the star of the Discovery Channel series Mexicánicos. During the day there will be contests, accessory sales, a children’s area for play and live music.
The general public can access the event with a cause for $20 pesos, though the Ángeles en Libertad will also welcome bags of plastic lids, which they sell to recyclers for funds to help terminally ill, low-income patients.
