Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The highly popular free Malecón Sculpture Walking Tour created and conducted by Galería Pacifico owner Gary Thompson will again be offered every Tuesday this season, beginning November 12, at 9:30 AM in front of the Millennium sculpture next to the Hotel Rosita, at the north end of the Malecón in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

Sculptor Mathis Lidice, for the eighth year of this tour, will once again be present to describe his inspiration for this creation. Gary will lead the walking tour along the Malecón, covering about 15 sculptures before ending at Galería Pacifico's facility, 174 Aldama Street, where sculptor Jim Demetro is usually available to discuss his sculptures, "Dancers of Vallarta" and "Woman Washing Clothes" as well as to explain the complex lost wax process of creating sculptures in bronze.

The tour lasts about two hours and no reservations are necessary. Additional information about the Huichol Indian designs in the pavement of the Malecón, offered by Kevin Simpson of Peyote People and Colectika Gallery, and other Vallarta walking tours led by Sandra Cesca of Learn Vallarta will be available.

A representative of the Los Mangos Public Library will also be present to explain their many activities and will provide a no pressure opportunity to make a donation to this worthy cause. The tours will continue through mid-April. More information may be obtained by calling Galería Pacifico at 222-1982 or by emailing GaleriaPacifico(at)gmail.com.
