Brownsville's beloved Baile del Sol is the same dance-filled party, but Charro Days Fiesta revelers get to enjoy it a day earlier.

Charro Days Manager Rosendo Escareño said Baile Del Sol will be from 2 to 8 p.m. today at the Charro Days Headquarters at 455 E. Elizabeth St.

"After Baile del Sol, please go downtown and celebrate some more," Escareño said.

But before Baile del Sol ends, residents will be treated to a day full of music, dancing, and great food and drink. There will also be several contests that the public can compete in.

"We will have lots of live music, entertainment. There will be lots of schools that are participating with dancers," Escareño said.

Participating schools include Port Isabel High School, Resaca, Putegnat and Sharp elementary schools, as well as the Jubilee Academy Public Schools.

"And plus all that, we'll have a children's costume contest. We also had an art contest about a month ago and the winner will be presented," Escareño said. "Then we have a bean taco eating contest."

There will also be a lot of music, including Amos de la Noche and the Tejano Boys.

One musical act Escareño said will be a treat for revelers includes Stillman Middle School students Jesus Urbina, Joel Trevino and Diego Fernandez, all of whom were selected performed on Telemundo's "La Voz Kids."

"What a small world that these three kids all go to the same school," Escareño said. "You can only imagine their little recitals."

Baile del Sol will also feature a couple adult folklorico groups as well.

"Most of it will be children dancing and lots of food and lots to drink," Escareño said.
