The details of this event, which is carried out with the support of sponsoring companies and the Municipal Government of Puerto Vallarta, were announced this Tuesday at a press conference by Eden Vanegas, Parkour practitioner; Alexis Enrique Rodríguez, a practitioner of Calisthenics and Street Workout, and Andrés Toffel, director of Mexico at Movimiento Parkour.
Andrés Toffel, indicated that the intention of this festival is to combine both classical and urban culture and sports, which this time will have a national call with more than 9 interested states and 55 people registered, not counting local participants. For this second edition, about 400 attendees are expected to be part of the exhibitions and competitions.
He indicated that the event will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., with activities such as a yoga class taught by Spiral Yoga, as well as graffiti, parkour, rap, calisthenics, breakdance, fencing and mixed martial arts competitions. In the case of graffiti, triplay boards will be placed in different points of the sports unit so that artists can capture their works, which will be sought afterward to display them publicly.
He explained that for those who wish to be part of any of the competitions, they can register electronically through the Facebook profile of the Vallarta Urban Fest. Participation will cost $100 pesos. For the general public, admission will be free.
In his participation, Eden Vanegas said that they seek to expand more and more this project that debuted last year, and that this type of space is provided to urban communities and athletes, “to begin to encourage this growth for athletes and not only in the sports field, but there is also a lot of interest from other athletes, from other states, to come here to Puerto Vallarta and gradually grow not only the sport but sports tourism.”
