Mardi Gras Puerto Vallarta kicks off Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 8 p.m with the parade beginning at the Hotel Zone’s Sheraton Hotel and heading south on the Malecón and ending at Olas Altas in Old Town.
Already the Puerto Vallarta Mardi Gras 2015 parade has nearly doubled participants from last year’s hugely successful event. Last year it is estimated that 20,000 people lined the parade route to take part in the celebrations, and this year hotels are reporting higher occupancy rates so a larger parade could also be welcomed by a larger audience next week.
This year at Puerto Vallarta’s Mardi Gras, ACT II’s ‘Voice of Vallarta’ contestants will serve as the parade’s Grand Marshall and kick-off the 3.5 kilometer parade, and participants will be judged for most creative entry and awarded cash and prizes.
