Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Fourth Annual Riverfest is being held on Saturday, March 7, at El Rio BBQ to benefit the special needs children of Puerto Vallarta. Fancy the chance to unwind, enjoy some excellent live music AND support a fantastic local charity? Well, this is the event for you!

Riverfest 2015 will run from 12 noon to 7 pm and promises to be a fantastic afternoon of entertainment featuring 7 live bands, fabulous food provided by El Rio BBQ and Barcelonas Tapas, a silent auction, 50/50 draws, unique vendors, and loads of fun in a gorgeous venue on the banks of the Cuale River.

MC Ron Spencer will introduce a star-studded line-up of musicians, including Kim Kuzma, Chris Kenny, Regina Zeren้, The Texas Embassy Blues Band, Los Chuyz, The Zippers, and The Gecko Band, who will entertain you throughout the afternoon as you enjoy the natural beauty of El Rio BBQ's excellent riverside location - for a donation of $80 pesos, plus refreshment costs.

All proceeds go to Pasitos de Luz - a wonderful organization with very minimal resources that provides loving care and therapy to children with acute physical and psychological illnesses. Your support enables them to offer love, support and rehabilitation to the special children of Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas.
