    I will be there!! a lot of good and different events going on. the new trail being used for the ciclomania race looks awesome. the kids fun run is getting kid active. big river foundation is getting people interested in kayak and enjoying the rio grande. The bubble rally is helping with water filtration projects! laredo main street is providing local historic tours, farmers market, and the evenings entertainment. .great local bands from both sides of the rio. Factura 22, Umano Ache are from laredo, and banda revolucion is from nuevo laredo.

    the security is almost a non-issue. The organizers have worked EXTENSIVELY with bp, cbp, sheriffs, LPD, LFD, proteccion civil, SEDENA, just about all the sercuirty entities in the area to make sure the security it at its best.

    lets help support the community and present a festival of something completely different!! nuevo laredo will be having their own festival from 1-4pm.
