Second Annual Pulpito Drag Derby to Run May 21st

April 1, 2015

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Last May's Pulpito Drag Derby raised $25,000 pesos for new planters, street lights, benches and trash containers at the intersection of Pulpito and Olas Altas, as part of the Pulpito Plaza Project at the foot of the Pinnacle stairs.

The first annual Drag Derby featured a dozen faaabulously costumed contestants racing up and down the Pinnacle stairs, and in and out of Pulpito bars and restaurants, performing required stunts to the delight of the crowd cheering them on and placing bets.

The Derby was such a hit with locals and tourists alike that the Amapas Junta Vecinal is staging a rematch on Thursday, May 21.

This year's event will kick off Vallarta Pride, and blend seamlessly into its Opening Party, whose epicenter will be the former Paradise Community Center, spilling out onto Pulpito Street with a DJ and special entertainment throughout the evening - an Amapas block-party on steroids.

The Derby needs dozens of volunteers to help with organizing and publicity, placing bets, selling t-shirts, keeping track of the contestants - who can be a real handful - and helping out behind the scenes.

A big event, lots of fun, and all for a good cause. If you'd like to volunteer, email the Amapas Neighborhood Association at info(at)amapaspv.com.

The Amapas Neighborhood Association is the official association of residents and business owners in the Colonia Amapas of Puerto Vallarta. A volunteer and not-for-profit association with about 350 members, the ANA was founded in 2002 to improve the quality of life in Amapas. We work to keep our neighborhood safe, beautiful, desirable and welcoming to tourists and residents from all countries and walks of life. We are also the official "Junta Vecinal" or neighborhood council for Amapas, the legal representative of the neighborhood to the city government. Learn more at AmapasPV.com.
