MISSION — Local residents will put their skills to the test this weekend and display their clothing creations made from oranges, grapefruit, cabbage and other Rio Grande Valley agricultural products at the annual Texas Citrus Fiesta Product Costume Show.
The event will be held Jan. 14 at 2 p.m. at the Mission Community Center, 1420 E. Kika De la Garza Loop. Each costume must have a mask in keeping with Mardi Gras traditions as it’s the theme of the show.
Costumes are made from agricultural products grown here, and each costume must use citrus of some kind.
