Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, May 25th, 2014 - Puerto Vallarta's LGBT community held the city's second Gay Pride Festival with assistance from the municipal government. From May 22nd to 26th, 2014; various hotels, beach clubs, restaurants and bars in the iconic Romantic Zone, Vallarta's most popular gay district, have been held events to celebrate diversity in the city.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Hotel Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Convention Center for the 6:00PM start of the much anticipated Vallarta Pride Parade. Featuring more than 50 floats and hundreds of people, the parade route continued down the streets of Paseo Díaz Ordaz, Ignacio L. Vallarta, Venustiano Carranza, Olas Altas, and finally Rodolfo Gómez to finish at Lázaro Cárdenas Park.

ACT II Entertainment was commissioned to produce a 2-hour musical event that started at 7:00PM and was hosted by the Grand Marshall of Vallarta Pride Alejandra Bogue and La Supermana as María Félix bringing together some of the best local talent to put on a fantastic open air concert. In addition, Diva Divine, Carla Fifi were the MC for the dance portion of the event. Movie star Charly Díaz was in the park available for photo opportunities, autographs and interviews.

The talented DJ Marco, one of the most popular in Vallarta, was in charge of spinning the opening set and he put out a fabulous mix of beats that had festival-goers on the dance floor.

There were also numerous food stalls, community organizations and local businesses participating in the park festivities, joining in the celebration of equality. Mist & More provided a misting tunnel and 4 misting fans to refresh the crowd during the festivities. Star Events provided the amazing tents and Sonido Winners the great sound system.

Although the festival at Lazaro Cardenas Park ended promptly at 11:00PM (out of respect for the neighbors), the party went on until dawn at bars and clubs nearby.

 Organizers, sponsors, supporters, donors, participants and the LGBT community were pleased with the acceptance and success of what was the second Gay Pride Festival in Puerto Vallarta.
