Especially for the Christmas season, the Christmas market will offer decorated hand-made ornaments.  Two booths will sell a wide variety of hand-made toys and beautiful dolls at economical prices, which can be taken home for original gifts for family and friends or donated to Santa, for distribution on Dec 23 to needy children at the annual Vallarta Abuelos Christmas Party.  

The bazaar will be held from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm in the Colonia 5 de Diciembre, at 1261 Bolivia on the corner with Honduras, next to the Hotel Paloma del Mar and Meño’s Restaurant.
