Entre Amigos Community Center will celebrate its 10th anniversary on February 13 with a spectacular parade and community festival. “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. Don’t forget to visit www.entreamigos.org.mxand www.facebok.com/entreamigossanpancho for more information.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other.”

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
