Update on the ABC Festival Community Family Fun Fundraiser

Ronnie Barker - Amigos de Bucerias
February 21, 2013

The ABC Festival is a major charity event you will NOT want to miss!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 2, 2013, from 2:00 until 6:00 pm.
It's all happening at the Explanada Corona, a huge arena opposite Colegio Bucerias & the Miguel Aleman school on Estaciones in Bucerias.

All net proceeds are going to the Children's Library "Biblioteca Rey Nayar".

This is going to be "school sports day meets village fair" - with extra toppings!

There will be 40 VW Classic Beetles on display, plus other classic cars, Harley Davidson motorbikes, and some caballeros with the original horsepower!

Live music from the fabulous group The Gecko Band (thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Luna Lounge).  You won't just be tapping your feet, you'll be up and dancing!

With a return to traditional family values, there will be games for the kids you'll remember from your childhood: sack race; 3 legged race; egg and spoon race... and a chance for the adults to join in too! Come and be a kid again!

There will be Raffles; bouncy castle and other games thanks to The Shamrock Pub.

The event will include a competition for the kids to find a mascot for the library and another mascot and slogan for our Amigos anti litter campaign.

Come and enjoy lots of cheap food from local vendors, maybe pick up some bargains from the artesans (we're helping the local economy!)  - and, of course, enjoy a drink or three because we will have the all important toilets.

There will be posters directing you from the highway, but it's easy to find: turn inland at the set of traffic lights by the Famar Restaurant = Estaciones, and follow the signs. There is ample on-street parking if you have a car, if not, a special shuttle service will be in operation from the shade of the big Huanacaxtle tree at the highway end of Estaciones.

Entry is 10 pesos for adults, kids to bring a mascot drawing.

Please contact Ruben Ramirez, Librarian Bucerias Children's Library, 298-3434, Monday - Friday, 1:00 - 5:00 pm, or email Ruben at bibliobucerias@gmail.com.

Veronica (Ronnie) Barker, President of Amigos de Bucerias, 298-0053 or (322) 148-9103, Ronnie's email is amigosdebuceriasac@gmail.com.

Come and join us - you'll be glad you did!
