At a press conference, Carlos Salas Venegas and Guillermo Mendoza Pérez, organizers of the event, announced that the Vallarta Urban Fest is an event that brings together various urban disciplines such as Parkour, Longboarding, Breakdance, Skating, BMX, Batucada, Graffiti, Rap, among others, through which they express themselves.
The Vallarta Urban Fest will take place this Saturday, December 15 from 4:00 in the afternoon and until 11:00 at night in the esplanade of the Malecón, next to the lighthouse.
Salas Venegas and Mendoza Pérez thanked the support granted by the City Council of Puerto Vallarta and the councilor Saúl López Orozco, president of the Sports Commission within the Cabildo Vallarta.
The Vallarta Urban Fest was born from the need “to express the sensations of us young people who have been practicing some of these disciplines for more than 8 years”, said Mendoza Pérez.
Salas Venegas said that in this festival, in addition to bringing together participants from this city, as well as Guadalajara, Tepic, and Los Cabos, young people and children who come, can learn about these urban sports and activities and have the opportunity to practice them, since they have a ‘ParkourCity’ academy.
Councilman Lopez Orozco, highlighted events like this, which come to boost the expression of young people and away from drugs and crime.
The reason why -he added- the City Council will be looking to work hand in hand with young people, providing greater spaces and support for practicing this type of Umbrian disciplines.
