Mercedes Livestock show grounds working on new improvements
MERCEDES, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Improvements are coming to the Rio Grande Valley's Mercedes Livestock show grounds over the next three months.
A new entrance will be added over the next several months with state of the art ticket sales and new restrooms.
All of it should be ready-to-go for the show's Diamond Jubilee Celebration in March, following the groundbreaking this past weekend.
Livestock show President Bobby Sparks stated on the new improvements, "When people come in they want to be "Wowed" right when they walk in. So we're going to build this really nice entrance, so when they walk in, they go "wow." This is just the beginning, we've got a plan that reaches out 25 years for different things out here, but this is the beginning and this is a big deal for it. Like I said, the livestock show for Mercedes and for the Rio Grande Valley."
