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 has helped us a lot to position our business, the fact that people see us in the magazine has contributed their coming back to Faith Colectiva. Actually, we have measured the reach of our advertising by offering a free gift and it is unbelievable to see them coming with the issue.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”
