What's going on in Vallarta - Sept 15th/16th Independence Day!

Recommended Posts

Once-in-a-while I like to tell you what's going on down here in your wedding spot of choice, so here's my update! Everyone is gearing-up for THE most important government holiday of the year (I would say THE most important holiday but I really think this one ties with Christmas!!) which is Mexican Independence Day. Everywhere you go right now there are vendors selling Mexican flags and noise devices and t-shirts and and and and - you name it but whatever it is it is outfitted in the striped colors of green, red and white!


Sept 15th/16th, for the Mexicans, mark their day of Independence from Spain. The revolutionary leader who started the rebellion against Spain was Father Miguel Hidgalo. It's claimed he cried out, "Long live religion! Long live Our Lady of Guadalupe! Long live the Americas and death to the corrupt government!" This cry will be repeated all over Mexico (including PV!), along with the ringing of a bell on the night of Sept 15th. After this cry, there will be a lot of partying going on. Here in Vallarta, the plaza will be PACKED - we went one year but I don't like it when there are so many people you can't even move wink.gif.


They will have castillos (I wrote to you about those once - those are big firework displays that are set-off and they have images on them - super dangerous but really pretty wink.gif) and fireworks and music. Then, on Sept 16th, there will be a big parade that will go through the streets of downtown on the Malecon. Wild, crazy two days!!

Awww MAN! That sounds like a blast!


Last year we just missed the parades for Guadalupe day in December. We got downtown late and went to dinner at El Arrayan and when we came out the people were cleaning up from the festivities.


Sounds like fun though!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
