MCALLEN, Texas – The Day of the Conquista is taking place in downtown McAllen.
The event is hosted by Yerberia Cultura and is completely free with 13 hours of live music, poetry and more.
Organizers are giving out free masks so that residents can stay safe while enjoying the event.
“A lot of the vendors here, they haven’t had the opportunity to sell their product, you know, the artistic community and the musicians. This has been very tough you know? So, it’s just creating opportunities for all these creative individuals,” said Uriel Landeros an art mural contributor.
The event will conclude Saturday at 2 a.m.
