Mayor Joe E. Vega and the Port Isabel City Commission invite residents and the public alike to come celebrate Dies Y SeisDe Septiembre on Saturday, September 22, at 4:00 p.m. atWashington Park located on Jefferson Street in Port Isabel.
The idea of having a “Pachanga” in the Park” started with a meeting by the Mayor and Commissioners about four years ago wanting to have a community family event that celebrates the Mexican culture and at the same time promote our park system. The City will present a day of music, great food, beverages, chalupa bingo, and more. The festivity will include a chalupa making contest, a grito contest, dance contest, Mexican costume contest, a jalapeno eating contest, D.J. Music, Live Music, a presentation by the Derry Elementary Foklorico Dancers and lots of more fun activities. The wonderful concession food and beverages include: chalupas, tacos, menudo, tamales, hot dogs, hamburgers, sweets, turkey legs, aguasfrescas, sodas, a beer garden and much more.
Mayor Vega states, “Please join us for this Family Fun Event at Washington Park. Last year’s event was extremely successful. It was nice to see the community gather in celebration of our Mexican heritage. I’m looking forward to another fun-filled occasion that celebrates our rich culture.”
Any proceeds from this event will go to the improvements of the parks in Port Isabel. Our parks include Washington Park, Laguna Madre Park and Sports Complex, Pompano Boat Ramp and Docks Park, Auturo Galvan Park, Railroad Park, Veterans Park, Beulah Lee Park, Barrel Mock Park, and Historic Lighthouse Park. Having green areas for our residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors is crucial to the quality of life in Port Isabel.
Entrance is free to the public. For more information contact the City of Port Isabel at (956)943-2682.
All proceeds benefit the upgrade of the Parks in Port Isabel.
