Full Moon Jazz, the signature event for Telchac Education, is right around the corner! Saturday, March 3 is the date for the ninth year of this popular annual jazz festival. Fabulous music from three different jazz bands, delicious and varied food at the food court (four stands, with two new providers), a bar with refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, lots of dancing over the pool and under the moon, and YOU, are the ingredients that make a successful and much anticipated event. Oh, yes! And, the hula hoop lady!

Full Moon Jazz is the major fund-raiser for Telchac Education. The funds raised from this festival directly support 22 students in Telchac Puerto plus 13 university students who study in Mérida and Valladolid.

Three jazz bands will be playing a variety of jazz to keep everyone in a partying and dancing mood. The groups this year are the ever popular Gina Osorno and The Dreamers; the anchor group, Merida Big Band, known for getting everyone up to dance; and Sr. Mandril from México City. Each group has a different style of jazz.

Additional treats will include a new line of T-shirts, the popular 50/50 raffle, brownies and coffee, and more. There will also be a book drop-off box at the T-shirt table if you want to donate books in Spanish: from grade school to adult levels, for the students and people of Telchac Puerto.

There will be four stations at the Festival, including two new suppliers: Tacos by Arabe Tapatío and vegan cuisine by Fitorade, plus the ever popular hamburgers and hot dogs by Burger Addict, and the cheese, ham and salami platters by Le Bistro Gourmet.

Come out and have a ball while directly supporting education in Telchac Puerto!
