Marlin Natacion and Prepa Vallarta are excited to announce their second of three planned swimming competitions, the "2nd Serial Marlins Prepa Vallarta," which will take place on February 23 and 24, 2019, at Preparatoria Regional de Puerto Vallarta, Hidalgo 500, (21 de marzo) in La Floresta.
The main purpose of these events is to encourage Puerto Vallarta children, teenagers, and people of all ages to enjoy swimming and its benefits. Swimming encourages a more active lifestyle; teaches discipline, responsibility and courage; and provides an opportunity to form new friendships.
All the money collected during the competition will be used to improve our Prepa Vallarta swimming pool with these 2 things: Purchasing new swimming lanes for training and lessons, and purchasing a new swimming pool ladder.
We thank you for your kind consideration. If you want to learn more about our swimming school, team or institution, please visit us at prepavallarta.sems.udg.mx.

With Mardi Gras just a few months away, Puerto Vallarta is gearing up for a special edition of its annual parade. This year's three-kilometer-long carnival parade will begin at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, March 5th in the hotel zone and proceed on the world-famous Malecón to Los Muertos Pier.
Observers should be prepared to catch some beads and revel along with incredible floats, colorful costumes, towering stilt walkers, street performers and dancers, all part of the family-friendly festivities branded as CarnavalPV. The friendly tenor of Puerto Vallarta and its yearly carnival is brought to the forefront by the diverse merrymaking crowd that is drawn and welcomed by the event: "gay, straight, light, dark, male, female, old, and young, all for a collective purpose, to get as many beaded necklaces as possible. Don't miss the fun," said CarnavalPV organizers, Gary Green and Tim Longpré, in a press release.
Businesses, organizations, schools and individuals can sign up and register their floats and troupes through email at info(at)carnavalpv.com or join the conversation at the festival's Facebook page. $10,000 pesos will be awarded to the most creative entry. Incanto, Andales on the Bay, and Reinas Bar captured the top creative honors in 2018.
Organizers said last year's event brought over 30,000 cheering residents and tourists from all walks of life together on the city streets to be wowed by floats and parade participants celebrating the diversity of the city. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is best known in New Orleans but celebrated in many cities around the world. Fat Tuesday refers to the day when many people eat fattening foods and stock up before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.
