Charro Days Fiesta is held every year in Brownsville, TX to celebrate the rich traditions, culture and shared heritage of the Texas – Mexican border region. Since the first Charro Days Fiesta in 1938 to the present day, the festival continues to be an important part of Brownsville culture. The fiesta is held every year in late February and includes parades, traditional dance and dress, arts and crafts, music and food, as well as special performances and events. This footage features a parade from the Charro Days Fiesta in 1947. Points of interest include the elaborate floats; the three shown are colorful and grand in size, one includes a volcano that actually emits steam and another carries a giant windmill.
