Sinaloa Sectur highlighted the award given by the magazine México Desconocido 125 years after the Mazatlan festival.
The Mazatlán International Carnival won first place in the Best of Mexico contest, organized by the magazine México Desconocido.
On the third day of activities of the Tianguis Turístico CDMX 2023, the organizing committee announced the result that accredits the Mazatlán celebration as the carnival event for which the majority of the participants voted.
La Perla del Pacífico participated in the category of “ Carnival Party with the greatest tradition and color”, and competed against other destinations where they also have their Carnival celebrations: Veracruz; Campeche; Tlayacapan, Morelos; Merida Yucatan; Huejotzingo, Puebla, and Tlaxcala.
Before the announcement, the Secretary of Tourism of Sinaloa, Estrella Palacios Domínguez, celebrated the distinction.
“We Sinaloans are known nationally and internationally for this great party that is already 125 years old; without a doubt that this will result in a great promotion for Sinaloa,” he said.
The head of the Sinaloa Sectur indicated that as a result of the Carnivals, people have the opportunity to live the joy of the Sinaloans, the color, the culture, the party with the queens, with the parade of floats, with the concerts and the cultural part, which is something very important that distinguishes it from others.
“So, let this great party continue, let’s continue celebrating that we have the best Carnival in the country and many, many congratulations to all Sinaloans from the Governor of the State, Rubén Rocha Moya,” he concluded.
