20 spaces will be made available on the Malecon and Juarez Street sides of the Presidencia on November 1 and 2 for the display of Day of the Dead Altars made by residents of Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas. Participants must register with the Division of Arts and Culture, located on the upper Río Cuale island, with the Profr. Enrique Barrios Limón. Registration is free.
The rules for display are HERE and basically require that the displays be 3 meters by 2 meters and of a personal nature, and not political, commercial or untraditional in any manner. Only materials traditionally used in such altars will be allowed. Altars must be installed on October 31 at 6 pm and removed on November 3. Labels on the altars should be bilingual.
The Calaveras Poetry Contest is open to all residents of the area and also has rules HERE.
