Puerto Vallarta celebrated Fat Tuesday in style
Hundreds of revelers from all walks of life marched, danced and promenaded three-kilometers in a wonderful menagerie of energy, song and whirling colors on Tuesday night.
The Annual CarnavalPV — celebrating Puerto Vallarta’s 100th birthday — was a true celebration of life, energy and joy, providing an outlet of entertainment for residents and putting on an unforgettable show for visiting tourists. More than 30,000 spectators lined the picturesque route to enjoy the arsenal of glitter, feathers, paper mache, sequins, music and pageantry.
Incanto featuring Ballet Folklórico Tradiciones captured top honors and the $10,000 peso cash prize provided by PVRPV.com for the most creative entry among the 50 entries that took part in the annual outing. Reinas Bar and Andales on The Bay also received ‘honorable mention’ for their colorful entry.
Next year’s parade is slated for Tuesday – March 5, 2019. Event organizers, Gary Green and Tim Longpré, wish to thank Pvblo Corona, the volunteers, participants, spectators, Turismo Municipal de Puerto Vallarta, Police, Transit Police and the Protección Civil y Bomberos Puerto Vallarta for their support.
