Entre Amigos Celebrates San Pancho's Family-Friendly Community Festival

On February 13th the Entre Amigos Community Center will celebrate its 10th anniversary with the “San Pancho’s Community Festival.” San Pancho, the Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit will be filled with art, family-friendly fun, love and happiness.

“What’s interesting about San Pancho is there are a lot of organizations that are turning 10 at the same time,” said Nicole Swedlow, Creator and Director of Entre Amigos. “Around that time, ten years ago, we were all a bit younger and we were all thinking about what kind of a future we wanted for San Pancho, what kind of a world we wanted to live in and how we were going to do it. And with our youth, with our ideas and the thought that, yes, it’s possible, we did it. And we’re still doing it!”

“The community already feels the investment of energy and love that Entre Amigos and many other organizations have put in,” added Swedlow with a smile. “Now we can celebrate this path we’re making towards a better future together with the entire community and our own kids.”

An “Alebrijes” themed parade will begin at 4 p.m. with the participation of some 300 people. It starts at the facilities at Entre Amigos and then makes its way to the Plaza del Sol, where there will be several celebratory activities, expos and games both educational and eco-friendly.

The Festival’s inauguration begins around 6:30 p.m. with plenty of surprises, including shows and a verbena. Around 9 p.m. there will be a Donation of the 1,000+ Timeline Photos to the residents of San Pancho, finishing up with banda music.

The activities are free of charge and all the art on display will be handmade, the food traditional and the ambiance laidback—the usual vibe in San Pancho.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau would like to congratulate Entre Amigos and all the organizations that have dedicated themselves and their work to San Pancho. Don’t forget to visit Entre Amigos site or on Facebook.
