Charro Days Poster Unveiled

Local News

The Charro Days festivities begin this morning with the annual poster unveiling. 

The weeklong festivities celebrate the international ties between Brownsville and the Mexican city of Matamoros.

Charro Days began in 1937 as a way for the neighboring cities to thrive during the Great Depression. This upcoming February the festivities continue after 81 years.  

“It’s a yearly event. It’s important… like I say, I’d rather be at Charro Days than have a Christmas vacation.” Says President of Charro Days Lucy Escamilla.

Charro Day’s events begin on February 18 with the iconic parades starting on February 22.
