This was the first festival to celebrate Mexico’s famous taste treat, the taco, held in Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
Erase the image you have of the hard shell filled with hamburger meat topped with sour cream, lettuce and shredded cheddar. That is no where near a REAL taco as it is meant to be.
Such a fun time was had by all at Lazaro Cadenas Park to begin a week-long series of events in time for Mexico’s Independence Day, September 16th.
Sponsoring restaurants included Mauricio’s, Cafesto, Coleguita Mariscos, Burrito Beach, Sonora Sur, Taquitos Acapulco-Vallarta, Taqueria La Carlotta, Taco Mio, El Machin, Las Adelitas and others.
A variety of tacos from across the country included asada, pastor, lobster and shrimp. Maximum price was $10 pesos with some $5 peso choices and many samples.
Colima Brewery brought the cerveza.
As always, admission was free and included the live music and the award-winning dance troupe from the Ballet Folklorico Xiutla performing their regional dances from several states including Guerrero, Durango, Yucatan, Chiapas, Veracruz and Jalisco.
