After sunset, the real magic happens. Plazuela Machado’s trees, wrapped with Italian lights, come sparkling to life, antique street lamps bathe everything in a soft yellow glow, candles flicker from every table. and hundreds of people descend upon the plaza. From a stage at one corner of the plaza, a six piece band plays romantic ballads, enticing some to dance, while others enjoy the music as accompaniment to their alfresco dinner.
Many in the crowd are dressed in their finest, destined for a performance at the historic Angela Peralta Theater, which anchors one end of the plaza. The festivities go on until well after midnight, from Wednesday through Sunday, every week of the year. Without a doubt, Plazuela Machado is the place to see and be seen in Mazatlan, Mexico.
