Our Lady of Guadalupe Annual Celebrations
in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico every December 1-12 

"Virgin of Guadalupe today your children come before you our mother to give thanks for all the blessings received"  
Guadalupe commemoration in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in December 2018

Pies, cakes and other foods in the main plaza downtown


Guadalupe festival and processions on Juarez street in Puerto Vallarta in December

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.

The main plaza or Zocalo in downtown Vallarta is full of people most nights and has many vendors selling food,
desserts, souvenirs, sweets and trinkets during the Guadalupe celebrations

The town also puts on quite a series of shows every night during the festival days of Guadalupe

Float with a mariachi band following it


These people in their masks are an usual sight that I have not see before during these festivals.
Obviously the whole family sometimes takes part. Amazing!

People being blessed at the entrance to the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Many of these groups have walked long distances

from their neighborhoods or place of business to take part in these festive and holy celebrations

Many people spend hours in the processions, and here's a shot of some places to eat along 31 de Octubre street downtown just off the Malecon
A very classic Mexican scene here.

 dancers at the Our Lady of Guadalupe celebrations every December in Vallarta
Many groups of dancers take to the streets during the Guadalupe festivities
and are roundly applauded after their performances.
As the long line of processions pause along downtown Juarez street, which is closed in the evenings,
the young dancers here with their festive clothing and headgear perform for several minutes.

The group from the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies of Puerto Vallarta and Nayarit state walking downtown along Juarez street

More dancers in the street who are all colorfully dressed in traditional Aztec garb
with beads, head-dress and feathers.

This is one of my favorite photos from the celebrations along Juarez street - a float in devotion to the Virgin of Guadalupe who is
always represented as a young girl, with the Juan Diego figure kneeling in front of her, and lots of beautiful flowers.

How festive and colorful the crowds and those participating - Here's the Folkloric Group Azteca or Groupo Folclorico Vallarta Azteca
who regularly perform around town, another of the enjoyable attractions and fun things to see while visiting Puerto Vallarta

Scene from along Juarez street - this downtown street has crowds sitting and walking on both sides the whole twelve nights
Pictured in the background are some more dancers and another float in the distance

popular events in Vallarta - dancers during the feast of Guadalupe
The processions all go down or up Juarez street to the downtown Cathedral entrance -
Here are some colorfully dressed dancers from Barcelo, one of the large hotels in town

These twelve days of events during the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in gay-friendly Puerto Vallarta
are among the most beloved of all the city's tourist attractions and are attended
by many thousands of participants, locals and foreign visitors.
