On Saturday, February 20, 2009, Mardi Gras Fever hit Puerto Vallarta hard! PVPRV was one of 31 parade entrants viewed by thousands along the parade route through the southside of Vallarta. Though, like most parades, it got started a bit late but for the first year, it was a smashing success. Kudos to organizers at Club Manana and to the hundreds who rode on floats, dressed in elaborate costumes, directed traffic, passed out drinks, let us use your restrooms, and really made the night work!. Events like this really build community and we all had a blast! Can’t wait for next year…you won’t want to miss it.
