On Sunday, September 14th, El Dia Nacional del Charro (National Charro Day) was celebrated in Puerto Vallarta.  At 11:30 am, more than 100 members of La Union de Asociaciones de Charros de Puerto Vallarta (the Union of Puerto Vallarta Charrors Associations) and delegations from 7 countries (Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Mexico) participated in a parade through town with great clamor.  The parade started at Plaza Lazaro Cardenas and ended at the McDonald's on the Malecon.  A large and enthusiastic crowd was on hand for the spectacle.  Hope you enjoy the photos and please share this site with your friends and feel free to leave your comments.  More photos covering a wide variety of subject are available for your viewing on my web site at:
