Eagle Pass Celebrates Its Multicultural Border Advantages
While authentic Mexican goods and food can be found right on Main Street in Eagle Pass for a complete “taste of Mexico” on American soil, our sister city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, is a short trip away across one of two international bridges. In fact, Eagle Pass is the fastest route between San Antonio and Mexico and is often referred to as "La Puerta de México" or Mexico's Door. Each March, Eagle Pass is home to the International Friendship Festival. The highlight is the Abrazo — Spanish for “embrace” — where people from both countries line up to hug one another in the middle of a border-spanning international bridge.
