As ArtWalk Vallarta begins its final weeks for the season, a new kind of walk is introduced to downtown. Today, Music Walk was announced as a walking tour through centro every Tuesday at 7 PM beginning April 14.
“Callejoneada. Music walk” welcomes locals and tourists to join the walk with Rondalla de Puerto Vallarta beginning at the main plaza across from Los Arcos on the Malecon.
The sharing of local legends is part of the tradition of the callejoneada, a type of “walking serenade”, during which local musicians dress up in traditional 17th century costumes and weave their way through the cobblestone streets while playing music, singing popular folk songs, telling stories and reciting local legends.
The walking tour will have ‘stations’ to stop and enjoy the serenades at Our Lady of Guadalupe, and along Hidalgo, Galeana, Morelos, Corona, and ending at Casa Mascota located at Juárez and Aldama.
The end of the tour will introduce more music in a festive street party atmosphere and refreshments.
The new Music Walk aims to bring more art and life to the historic center of Puerto Vallarta.
