Bugambilia Festival hits the streets of Puerto Vallarta

This year, besides ornaments bougainvillea and other flowers, visitors will find displays of classical ballet, Polynesian dances, live music, painting, crafts, food, and a series of workshops for the general public, among which are those of ecological issues.

During the four days the festival will be held from 10:30 am to 11:00 pm. Also, from 6:00 pm, will take place the various art exhibitions. During the first day of activities, on April 28, these activities will begin with a shared celebration and parade between Bugambilia Festival and the International Folklore Festival, organized by the Folklore Vallarta Azteca group.

The parade will begin at the hotel Buenaventura, in the colony on December 5, and continue to the Malecon; Folklore groups from 17 delegations will participate, mariachi bands, the famous dancing horses, and dance companies, who will display their skills to the delight of spectators.
