As a border city, San Luis Río Colorado (SLRC), is a bridge for more than 15 thousand people who daily cross to the United States to work on the fields, that is why the emigrant party seeks to recognize them. They always provide an important economic contribution to our city. The event will be enlivened with live music, well-known artists performances, a gastronomic showcase, cultural presentations, among others.

Venue: Esplanada Municipal (Ave. Juárez and Calle 4a, SLRC, Sonora).
