The City of Edinburg and the Edinburg EDC, in partnership with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV), held the first-ever “Tailgate with the Mayor & Council” in celebration of City of Edinburg Appreciation Night to support the UTRGV Men’s Basketball team. The entire Edinburg community was invited to support the team and watch the game. The special ticket price also included a free taco from Taco Palenque. “This was a great partnership in which we were able to collaborate with UTRGV as we work towards strengthening our partnership and encouraging our community to support our UTRGV sports teams,” said Mayor and EDC Board Director, Richard Molina. During the event, the community had the opportunity to meet with the City Commission and EDC Board. Attendees were treated to prizes and goodies from the Edinburg EDC. “We had a great time meeting with the community and sharing information with them about upcoming projects,” stated EDC Executive Director Joey Trevino. “The community really came out to support us and UTRGV and we look forward to working with them to continue to promote activities at the campus,” he added.
