MOTHER’S DAY FESTIVAL IN NUEVO VALLARTA > FESTIVAL MAMA CHULA 2014
On May 9, 2014, along the beautiful boardwalk of the Nuevo Vallarta marina, the annual Festival Mama Chula was celebrated in grand style.
Eighteen different restaurants hosted food booths offering gourmet dishes, while separate booths sold wine, beer and a variety of other beverages. Several vendors manned booths selling various local goods, jewelry and accessories. The celebration was well attended and included plenty of fabulous entertainment and fun all afternoon long and into the evening.
The proceeds from this successful event went to support a newly-opened orphanage in the town of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. In addition, special raffle tickets were sold for a gorgeous painting, with the funds from the raffle going towards the purchase of prosthetic legs for a local gentleman. There was a very generous number of fabulous consolation prizes awarded for participants in the raffle. At the end it was announced that an equivalent of more than $2,000 USD was raised for the prosthetics.
