Cesar Chavez Day celebrates the birth and legacy of the migrant farm worker activist who co-founded the United Farm Workers. It is observed every year on March 31, which, this year, falls on Friday.

But because it's not a federal holiday, and the state of Texas only recognizes it as an optional state holiday, it will be mostly business as usual in El Paso.
