Puerto Vallarta Celebrates September with Major Cultural Festival

Published Aug 29, 2008, 1:11pm - (Updated Nov 28, 2011, 5:32pm)

Puerto Vallarta Mayor, Javier Bravo Carbajal, and Wally Lobatto from Puerto Vallarta’s Cultural Department shared details about the upcoming Puerto Vallarta Vive Festival, to take place during the month of September. The festival will offer civic, sporting and cultural events organized by a professional team in each area.

Bravo recalled that this festival was created primarily to celebrate the International Day of Tourism which takes place during said month, as well as to stimulate the influx of tourism. Despite the fact that Mexico celebrates its independence nationwide during the month of September, it is also traditionally considered the most challenging month for local businesses due to a decrease in visitors.
