Every year at this time various organizations, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, groups, associations
and whole neighborhoods in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas participate
in the processions to the city's principal Church of Our Lady Of Guadalupe
in one of Puerto Vallarta's main attractions and festivals.

during the first days of the celebrations in December 2013
Many dozens of groups of dancers take to the streets during the Guadalupe celebrations
and are roundly applauded after their performances.
As the processions pause along calle Juarez, which is closed in the evenings,
they perform for several minutes at a time.
