Good Friday In Puerto Vallarta : Easter is a major holiday in Mexico and Puerto Vallarta held a number of pagents on Good Friday.  We followed the one in our neighborhood which lasted about a hour and a half.  The stations of the cross were set up in front of neighborhood homes.  There was a large contingent of people following the participants in the pagent.  You can tell from the expressions on the participants faces that they take this very seriously.  It was a great experience for us and we really got caught up in the pagentry.

Copa Vallarta Millonaria De Charreria : The best Charro teams in Mexico were in action from February 16 to 20 at the Lienzo Charro Miguel "Prieto" Ibarria Stadium in Puerto Vallarta.  Lois and I attended the event on the afternoon of February 17th and were among the only gringos in the crowd.  This "Mexican Rodeo" was exciting and unique and we had a great experience.  There was a lot a action and I took over 600 photos in about two hours in an effort to capture the excitement.  A few of the shots are included in this gallery in an attempt to capture the essence of the event.

Fiestas Guadalupanas 2010 : The photos in this gallery are from the final day of the "Fiestas Guadalupanas" on December 12, 2010, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Las Peregrinaciones are the pilgrimages to Mexico's patron saint - the Virgin of Guadalupe.  The pilgrimages occur during the first twelve days of December each year in Puerto Vallarta.  Lois and I have been privileged to observe this event many times and it is always a very moving experience.  I have tried to capture the spirit and the essence of this event through the faces of the participants in the MAGNA PERIGRINACION DE LOS FAVORECIDOS (the favored ones) on display here.  I hope you enjoy these photos and get a feel for the very wonderful people who participate.

PEREGRINACION DE LOS FAVORECIDOS 2008 : The Festival of the Virgin of Guadalupe is held in Puerto Vallarta during the first 12 days of December each year.  December 12th marks the anniversary of the day when the Virgin of Guadalupe made her miraculous appearance to Juan Diego in Mexico City.  This gallery shows just a few of the thousands and thousands of "Favorecidos" who were walking to the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Puerto Vallarta on December 12, 2008.

The Ballet Folklorico Municipal Xiutla : The Ballet Folklorico Municipal Xiutla celebrated its fourteenth anniversary with a tour of Mexico, including performing before 5,000 attendees at the prestigious XIII International Folklore Festival in Zacatecas.  Representing Puerto Vallarta and the state of Jalisco, they were the youngest group of dancers among the more than 30 national and international groups that participated.  We saw their final performance of 2008 in Puerto Vallarta on December 19th.  IT WAS SPECTACULAR!!  The lighting and the motion were significant challenges.  Most of the shots were taken without flash and a high ISO.
