BROWNSVILLE, Texas – On Friday evening the public will see the Local 23 News Team in the Charro Days Illuminated Night Parade. They’ll be fully decked out in their wonderful outfits thanks to the Costumes of the Americas Museum.
The museum showcases costumes from the Pan-American Union such as Panama and Nicaragua, as well as their latest exhibits. Some of their collection dates back to the early 1900’s.
Cristina Tijerina, Director, Costumes of the Americas, “Every single costume is so unique and we try, we have over 600 costumes in our collection. Every time we present an exhibit we just want to highlight every single one that comes from every single country or state in Mexico.”
Currently, the museum also has an exhibit showcasing the art work of Brownsville students, which was made during a coloring contest. The paper doll costumes are currently on display. To see some of the amazing costumes at the museum, there is free admission Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
