We are incredible happy to be part of this month festivities happening in Riviera Maya. One of the major festival we all have been waiting for, it´s the Festival del Triciclo or Tricycle festival. This is the first festival ever that will gather all local business to create a massive event for locals and visitors from other countries. We had the opportunity to talk with the mastermind of this beautiful project and get the juicy details. If you are vacationing in Riviera Maya during July 22nd you cannot miss the opportunity to join. This event will be the perfect excuse to combine tourism with local culture and celebrate Playa del Carmen´s history.
La Quinta Magazine and Quinta Verde have been organizers of many wonderful events in the past. Incredible projects like Mundialito de Futbol de Playa or Riviera Maya Mexican Wine Festival. All successful events that have something in common: promoting the Riviera Maya and offering cultural options to visitors. Javier Martínez Fonseca is the master mind behind this ambitious project that will bring lots of families and business together. Important names like Mamita´s Beach Club, Ah Cacao Café and Coco Bongo Playa del Carmen are sponsoring. And the General Direction of Tourism and other cultural organizations are also supporting. We can barely wait to see all their tricycles decorated and parading along the 5th Avenue.
The opening of the event will be with the parade on the famous 5th Avenue. It will start on 5th Avenue and 40th street to continue the avenue and finalize at Parque Fundadores. During this parade the judges will take note of all decorations and creativity to determinate the winners of each category. Once at Parque Fundadores the party will begin and we will celebrate with live music and lots of delicious authentic food. The gastronomy not only reunites the street food vendors but also restaurants will bring their own food carts. Click here to download the parade route and location of Parque Fundadores.
The Festival del triciclo will be happening on July 22nd in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. With the first activity starting at 6:00pm and the massive party finalizing around 11:00pm. If you are staying anywhere in Riviera Maya or Cancun you will be minutes away only from the festival.
