Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Starting November 11th, the streets of Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica will be bustling with activity every other Friday from 6 to 10 pm, as locals and tourists alike head out to do the Southside Shuffle, a two block party on Basilio Badillo and Constitución.
The South Side shuffle offers a mix of culture, cocktails and music that gives everyone a chance to hang out with old friends and meet new ones - and the perfect excuse to shop for clothing, jewelry, art and home decor items at the 11 participating businesses.
PV's southside has been known as one of the best shopping areas in Vallarta for more than 20 years. And last year's city beautification project gave Basilio Badillo wider sidewalks, making it safe and easy to shuffle between the galleries, shops and boutiques that offer everything from fine art and home furnishings to folk art, jewelry and resort wear.
As not all of the businesses along the route are galleries, it is not an art walk; nevertheless participating galleries like Galleria Dante, Galeria Contempo and Galeria Puerco Azul will be showcasing individual artists throughout the season.
Along the way you can stop for a bite to eat, a cocktail and conversation, or to dance to the music provided by strolling musicians. What is more, it is safe to walk these streets at night, which means locals and visitors are at ease while enjoying the only ongoing party of its kind in Puerto Vallarta.

The fiesta hits the streets every other Friday from 6-10 pm, so come on out and enjoy cocktails, live music, and "Shuffling" between the 11 participating businesses on Puerto Vallarta's South side on Nov 11 & 25, Dec 16 & 30, Jan 13 & 27, Feb 10 & 24 and March 9 & 23.
