The charro associations in Puerto Vallarta are ready to celebrate Charro Day, which is commemorated on September 14th each year, with the traditional parade in which men and women on horseback will ride through the central streets. It is expected that a group of approximately one hundred charros and escaramuzas will participate, parading along Ignacio L. Vallarta Street, with a stop in front of City Hall, before continuing the route to Mexico Avenue and the 5 de Diciembre neighborhood.
Subsequently, from that point, they will head towards the El Pitillal delegation, where the charros and escaramuzas parade will continue in an area of great importance to the charrería tradition in Puerto Vallarta. Once the parade of men and women on horseback is concluded, a reception and friendly competition will take place to conclude the Charro Day celebration. It’s worth noting that seven groups are participating in this event, including the Las Costeñitas escaramuza. Among them are: Rancho La Palapa, Charros de El Pitillal, Hacienda Serena, Charros de Serena SRG, the Ramón Ibarría González team, El Par de Ases, Ejido La Palapa, and possibly the Alacranes de Las Palmas and those from Tomatlán. In addition, the Charros de Vallarta, although no longer part of the Union, continue to be charros with a long tradition.
