If you are a fan of mariachi music and rancheras then plan on being at the Chamizal this weekend. The 2019 season of Music Under the Stars concludes Sunday, June 30, with the traditional Noche Ranchera closer.

If it seems like the season barely got underway and now it's coming to a rather abrupt end it's because it is.

As 93.1 KISS-FM previously reported, federal budget concerns and the redevelopment of the Cohen Stadium site forced the city’s Museum and Cultural Affairs Division to shorten this year’s series to only 4 concerts.

Always one of, if not the most attended night in the series, this year's Noche Ranchera will feature Mariachi Alegre, considered one of the Borderland’s best mariachi groups.

The group has performed at venues and competitions all over the Borderland and the great Southwest, and alongside some big names in the genre including Pepe Aguilar, Pedro Fernandez, and Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan.

A large, enthusiastic crowd is anticipated so plan on getting there early enough to grab a good spot on the park lawn.
