BorderFest organizers offering prepaid Visa card for purchased tickets
HIDALGO CITY, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — BorderFest is less than a month away, but this year's celebration will offer something new for those who attend the event.
The City of Hidalgo announced that they will now offer prepaid Visa cards for people to purchase and use during the festival.
The mayor says the perks of using this card are being able to use it outside of BorderFest and not wasting money on unused tickets, "You come into the grounds, you buy tickets and before you know it, you go home and you've got 10, 12 tickets left or more and those tickets cost money that you're losing. With this card, with the Visa card, you'll be able to use that leftover money anywhere."
BorderFest runs from March 6th to March 9th at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo.
