With Charro Days festivities already underway and we wanted to know about security.
We're told that Matamoros is all set with their security plans for the International Parade which will be held Saturday afternoon. The Matamoros police department is adding 100 extra officers to street patrols. Police Chief Ruben Gonzalez says the added patrol is done every year as standard procedure and they always re-enforce other law enforcement in place.
The International Parade will be held Saturday at 1pm starting in downtown Brownsville and ending in Matamoros.
