I Love the Java Jive!
Puerto Vallarta hosts some grand free events and among them this year is something new and exciting: an attempt to break the Guiness Book of World Records for the greatest number of people tasting coffee at the same time. The sponsors claim they will be serving the best coffee in all of Mexico. The record breaking contest will take place on February 17th on the Malecon and the organizers are expecting at least 500 people to participate. The record they are trying to break was set in Germany in 2016 when there were 368 coffee-crazed java fans.
There are no restrictions on who can participate, as long as you are 18 years of age but the entire family is invited. Besides the tasters, a cheering audience is expected and though it won’t be a flash mob, it will have the same exhilaration. Public gatherings like this will encourage more of the kind, which makes Puerto Vallarta the joyful, entertaining place we love.
Coordinators are looking for volunteers who will be required to attend from the hours of 4 pm until 8 pm, but the actual event takes place at 6 pm. People are needed to help with registration, serving coffee, giving out free t-shirts, and in some cases supervising the head counts of coffee drinkers.
Participation will require registration and a bracelet that will facilitate the accounting. Cookies and coffee additives will also be handed out. The only slight caveat is the request to not bring pets, since it will be a crowded and very active site. The pet lovers of Puerto Vallarta will likely be bothered by this but planners are hoping they will understand the need. Make sure to arrive by 5 pm at the latest if you plan to join the fun, and make your way to the Arches where the entrance and registration will be set up.
To be considered for the volunteer effort, go to http://coffeefestpuertovallarta.com/home or visit the Facebook page Coffee Fest Puerto Vallarta.
It promises to be an enjoyable event, with a variety of entertainment, the usual vendors, and the air wafting with the scent of wonderful steaming coffee.
Que es cómo es.
