Many of these groups have walked long distances
from their neighborhoods or place of business to take part in these festive and holy celebrations
Many people spend hours in the processions, and here's a shot of some places to eat along 31 de Octubre street downtown just off the Malecon
A very classic Mexican scene here.
Many groups of dancers take to the streets during the Guadalupe festivities
and are roundly applauded after their performances.
As the long line of processions pause along downtown Juarez street, which is closed in the evenings,
the young dancers here with their festive clothing and headgear perform for several minutes.

More dancers in the street who are all colorfully dressed in traditional Aztec garb
with beads, head-dress and feathers.
This is one of my favorite photos from the celebrations along Juarez street - a float in devotion to the Virgin of Guadalupe who is
always represented as a young girl, with the Juan Diego figure kneeling in front of her, and lots of beautiful flowers.
How festive and colorful the crowds and those participating - Here's the Folkloric Group Azteca or Groupo Folclorico Vallarta Azteca
who regularly perform around town, another of the enjoyable attractions and fun things to see while visiting Puerto Vallarta
Scene from along Juarez street - this downtown street has crowds sitting and walking on both sides the whole twelve nights
Pictured in the background are some more dancers and another float in the distance
The processions all go down or up Juarez street to the downtown Cathedral entrance -
Here are some colorfully dressed dancers from Barcelo, one of the large hotels in town
These twelve days of events during the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in gay-friendly Puerto Vallarta
