Due to a lack of coordination, the Mazatlan Truck Week parade was disorganized


The parade was scheduled to start at 5:00 in the afternoon from Quirino Ordaz Coppel Avenue and along the boardwalk, but, apparently due to lack of coordination between the transit authorities, it only reached Playa Norte.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- As part of the activities of the second and penultimate day of Truck Week 2022, this Saturday afternoon the traditional parade was held along the boardwalk.

In the presence of hundreds of locals and tourists who, despite the strong and icy gusts of wind, flocked to the boardwalk, dozens of trucks paraded along the coastal strip.

The parade was scheduled to start at 5:00 in the afternoon from Quirino Ordaz Coppel avenue, from there it would go to El Valentinos and travel to Olas Altas; however, apparently due to a lack of coordination with the transit authorities, the event ended up being a bit disorganized.

In addition to the fact that their departure was delayed, at the height of Playa Norte the trucks began to be diverted, that is, they began to return and only about 10 units arrived at Olas Altas, led by the godfather of this third edition, Martin Vaca.

The staff of the organizing committee commented that, fortunately, or unfortunately, this year more trucks arrived at the parade, exceeding the 600 of the previous edition, but the avenue was not completely closed to road traffic, so even among the cowboys it was possible to see vehicles outside the parade, in addition to the fact that an accident was wanted to be avoided, since there was a large presence of children and the distance to the parading units was not taken care of.


  • The third edition of the Troca Week 2022 takes place from March 11 to 13.
  • The godfather of this edition was Martin Vaca, one of the most recognized mechanics in Latin America, who was also the judge of the tuned trucks.
  • For this edition, the arrival of some 1,200 trucks is expected in the different events.
