It will be the first time that an event of this type is held during Holy Week.
The Mazatlan Fest, which will be held from April 18 to 20 along Avenida Del Mar, has left hotel managers in the expectation of the results that will be obtained.
Karen Lizárraga, in charge of human resources of a hotel located on the aforementioned riu, commented that you still can not have an opinion about the festival since an event of this type had never been organized during Holy Week.
He added that any celebration that is in benefit of Mazatlecos and tourists is positive, however, he stressed that it is not known what will happen.
Some of the managers of small hotels on Del Mar Avenue accepted that they were unaware of the event that will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Holy Week, although they will be the closest to the celebration.
The event is organized by the municipal government and aims to attract family tourism, in addition to giving the opportunity to families who lack sufficient economic resources to enjoy a free evening, said Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez.
On April 18 and 19, concerts will be offered in four pavilions that will be located along Del Mar Avenue.
Different musical genres will be offered, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The mayor said that bathrooms will be installed along the avenue and will be free.
On the 20th there will be a closing ceremony on Bahia Avenue, after a parade of illuminated cars, which will start at 6:30 p.m.
There will also be a parking lot in front of the Mazatlan Aquarium, with 420 spaces.
He assured that the citizen will be given a preferential price. Transportation service will also be provided so that people can move to events without having to take their vehicles out of the parking lot.
