This is YOUR CHANCE to be Part of the First Annual Bougainvillea Festival

Bonnie Mott - Puerto Vallarta Garden Club
May 15, 2013

Lazaro Cardenas in Old Town Puerto Vallarta becomes an Artisan Pavilion starting this coming Friday, May 17, during the Bougainvillea Festival (Festival de Bugambilia). Activities go on through the following Saturday, May 25!  Food, décor, jewelry, traditional Mexican candy, fashion, art, and much more.

The Vallarta Garden Club has a pavilion in a prime location all week where we'll be promoting the beautification of Puerto Vallarta and also raising funds to assure we can continue our activities.

• Selling bougainvillea plants,

• Encouraging people to join the Garden Club with a special Rest-of-the-Year donation of just 100 pesos including a bougainvillea,

• Touting the planter and tree tile commemoration project, and


We will staff our pavilion every night during the festival from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

And the Club and Festival need your help!

We'd like two people for two two-hour shifts each night: 5:00-7:00 and then from 7:00 until 9:00 pm.  (Most of the festival activities are in Lazaro Cardenas Park all day and last later into the evening so you'll be able to participate in the fun before or after your shift!)

Indicate which shift you will do by sending a reply to Bonnie Mott.  (Of course you can choose more than one!)
