“Eleven years ago, the inaugural Vallarta Pride Festival took place in Lazaro Cardenas Park, and from those modest beginnings, it has blossomed into an internationally attended affair,” explained Javier Jimenez, president of Vallarta Pride. “Returning to Lazaro Cardenas Park for the Pride Sun Festival, we aim to create a three-day celebration embracing the LGBTQI+ community.
