Alicia Monroy Lizola, Presidente Municipal de Compostela concluded her speech at 8 P.M., and as she checked her watch and declared the 11th Festival Artistico Cultural officially opened, on cue, brilliant fireworks lit the sky.
Ensamble Grupo Folklorico Nayare Tradicional
The sole purpose of the group is to spread and promote the tradition of the folklore of Nayarit, and they did just that.
It was a splendid, colourful performance with splashes of colour, rhythm and choreography.
They were accompanied by a Mariachi group on the side stage.
The Mariachi “Los Galleros”, from Puerto Vallarta, presented a stunning performance with several outstanding vocal solos.
There were at least 2000 in attendance. The entire show lasted over 2 ½ hours, and the crowd was held spellbound. As they say, a good time was had by all.
There are concerts every Saturday during the month of February.
Note: The new lights and improved sound system were a big improvement over past years.
Of the Municipal of Compostela, Alicia Monroy said in a previous speech: “Compostela tiene todo para ser un “Municipio Mágico”.
