In its 41st year, South Texas’s largest music, culture and heritage festival “BorderFest” will celebrate the U.S.A. Each year, the festival has paid homage to a different country, bringing a bit of its culture and history to the Rio Grande Valley. In light of the current political climate, organizers decided to celebrate our own country, highlighting the things that make us all proud to be American. As such, there will be a 45-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty in the center of Liberty Square, where there will also be informative displays of American icons, as well as a stage with live performances by an Elvis impersonator, Native American dance tribes, a 16-piece brass swing band, zydeco music and more. There will be a Sea Lion Splash Show, a White Tiger Discovery, an interactive Kidz Science Lab, a motorcycle stunt show, a petting zoo. It’s three days of music, food, and family fun!
