Celebrate Spring Equinox with PEACE Punta de Mita in Riviera Nayarit
For the ancient Mexican cultures, the Spring Equinox was much more than the beginning of a new season, it was an annual event dedicated to transformation and balance between light and darkness. Despite the existence of many different Mexican indigenous cultures, each with different believes, traditions and customs, they all converged in the celebration of this event, which in some way unifies the Mexican pre-Columbian culture.
Knowing the importance of this annual and historic event, PEACE Punta de Mita and six schools from Kindergarten to High School from Punta de Mita and Higuera Blanca have joined to celebrate the six surviving Mexican Indigenous Cultures.
On Friday, March 21st, each school will represent one of these cultures, participating in a parade that will route from the Punta de Mita Sports Center to the Punta de Mita Plaza, located in Emiliano Zapata village, next to Peace Community Center.
Once at the plaza, each school will showcase the best of each culture, featuring folklore dances and traditional dishes for you to get a vivid portrait of each indigenous group.
All schools will participate in a contest to see who represents the best of its culture. Winner school will get a $2,000 prize in school materials.
Mark your calendar to attend this beautiful celebration of Mexico and support our local community!
Parade starts at 4:00 and party will continue until 8:00 pm.
See you there!
