Bright Colors and People at the 9th Children's Art Festival & Environmental Fair
We had an amazing day on Friday March 3rd at our annual Children's Art Festival and Environmental Fair. We started the day with student visits at Entreamigos from schools across the region. In the afternoon, we helped kids decorate their bicycles and get ready for the distinctive-perky-magical-animalesque parade to Plaza del Sol square, where all kinds of carnival-environmental games, workshops and activities were shared with the community. We ended the celebration with an awesome presentation by 85 talented kids from the Puerto Vallarta Orchestra School. Thank you for being a part of this annual event which represents our core values: education, creativity, environment, community, love.

During the months of March and April, we will be the second destination to host "Metamorfosis Marina" a project that protects life from human waste. It will begin Saturday, March 18th with a Stream Clean Up that will gather some of the trash used for a giant hunchback whale installation sculpture made out of recycled materials! Different groups of kids and adults are being organized to contribute with a piece of this work of art led by Leyla Issa Venegas.
