Charro Days 2015

Last weekend our hometown celebrated what’s known as Charro Days. I’ve written about it a bunch before, but in case you don’t know, Charro Days is a holiday that honors the special bond between South Texas and Mexico, specifically the towns of Brownsville and Matamoros. I love this holiday because it recognizes our rich history and culture. I also love it because my family has been celebrating for several generations now. It’s really special to watch my kids running around in their little outfits (even though I didn’t have a chance to get Damian a real one this year). The weather was pretty crappy so I didn’t get a chance to go to all the events and take more pictures, but here are a few from Thursday afternoon:

  1. I need one of those dresses for Emery! 🙂 Its so cute! We don’t have any celebrations like this around here. The most we ever have is Cinco de Mayo, and even that is a very small little festival designated to an even smaller section of our local park. 🙁 Glad to see that there are other parts of Texas that do celebrate it though! Looks like a lot of fun!
