While the number of entries might have been on the “wee” side in the St. Patrick’s Day parade at Royal Palms Mobile Home Park in Alamo last week, the creativity was considered outstanding by the judges.
Observing its 49th anniversary, Alamo Rec-Veh Park treated its residents to four fun-filled days, just as it has each year since its 45th celebration.
This year’s anniversary activities included crowning its king and queen, along with their court, two dances, a parade, several meals, a fishing derby, a Super Bowl party, a bake sale, and an auction.

Editor’s Note: If you are asking yourself what is a Winter Texan? – this edition is for you. As we were going through our back issues, we found this lovely piece from our first season of the Winter Texan Times. We thought what better way to tell what a Winter Texan is than to let 11-year-old Theresa tell you from her point of view. Before I turn it over to Theresa, if I am not the first, let me be the next to invite you to the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) to discover this hidden gem for yourself.
