The city of Brownsville has unveiled their 2019 Charro Days poster for their 82nd annual event.

This year's poster includes the image of a mariachi ensemble that was actually inspired by Mariachi 7 Leguas.

To lift the community's spirit during the Great Depression, city leaders brought Charro Days to celebrate Brownsville's authenticity and celebrate the cultural heritage and location along the U.S. - Mexico border.

“Everybody gets excited they get with their costumes. They start with their “gritos” (shouting), with their parties, their dances, it's just a great festivity,” said Maria De Lourdes Lieck, President of Charro Days.

Charro days will be held from February 23 through March 3.
