In a press conference, city officials announced the Third Mango Festival, to take place on Saturday, July 6, 4-10 PM at Plaza Lazaro Cardenas. Organized by Puerto Vallarta’s Department of Culture, Puerto Vallarta’s Rotary Club and the Highland Park-Puerto Vallarta Sister Cities Committee, the event brings together over a dozen renowned restaurants, charged with offering a variety of mango-based entrees, beverages or desserts. Proceeds raised during the event will be used to provide resources for several non-profit organizations in the area. Over 600 people attended the event last year, raising over $17,000 MXN. Organizers expect numbers to increase this year.
