The Rio Grande Valley is in full swing when it comes to festivals. The City of Pharr takes center stage April 7 with the annual Pharr Hub Phestival.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and the festival, with music, food and a whole lot more, will celebrate until midnight.

Among the attractions will be the Pharr Out Kids Nature Day (which sounds fun for adults too) that includes an animal petting zoo, a raptor project, information and exhibits from the World Birding Center, the Austin Bat Conservation and a West Texas Rattlesnake Show.

With two major highways cutting through the city of Pharr – Interstate 2 and Hwy. 281 – Pharr is a hub for traffic going from one end of the Valley to another. The city has also used that mantra to attract business, entertainment, retail and overall growth.

Car and motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors will have their show-stopping rides on display and there will be plenty of entertainment from the time the gates open until closing.

Drew & The Dancehall Dreamers perform at 5 p.m. Grupo Arroyo performs at 6 p.m. and will be followed by Texas Dezire at 7 p.m. Bo Garza goes on stage at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by Little Joe y La Familia at 8:45 p.m. Easton Corbin returns to the festival and will end the night; his performance begins at 10 p.m.

The cost is $5 after 5 p.m. for ages 12 and older. It is free before 5 p.m. The festival grounds are at Pharr city hall, located in downtown Pharr at 118 S. Cage Blvd.
