The traditions of this “two-nation fiesta” continue today. Those in attendance at this year’s festival will have plenty of opportunity to “baile” as dances are scheduled for both weekends of the event. In addition, there will be a flour tortilla eating contest, folkloric dancing, a golf tournament, parades, and more.
In short, Charro Days is an festival that provides fun for the whole family. And, while ’re in town, don’t miss the chance to stop by the world famous Gladys Porter Zoo, tour historic Port Isabel, or hop over to sunny South Padre Island. But, be warned, once you get a taste of what South Texas has to offer, you may not want to leave.
