Puerto Vallarta Kids Invited to Enter ‘Mayor for a Day’ Contest

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are widely celebrated throughout the world, but Mexico is such an inclusive culture that children have their own day, too! Celebrated every year on April 30 El Día del Niño is always filled with activities, gifts and special events.

As part of this year’s Children’s Day celebrations, the Puerto Vallarta City Council, through the Municipal System for the Comprehensive Protection of Children and Adolescents (SIPINNA), invites all kids 6 to 12 years of age to participate in the ‘Mayor for a Day’ contest.

Children who wish to participate in this contest must write an open letter accompanied by a drawing that depicts what would they do for Puerto Vallarta if they could be Mayor for a day. The works will have to be delivered by April 20 in an envelope with personal data, as well as a letter of authorization from the father, mother or guardian, at the SIPINNA headquarters (Office of Institutional Development, Aldermen’s Room C, Municipal Palace), between the hours of 8 the morning to 4 in the afternoon.
