Join us for VIVA McAllen Streets 2014

 

2nd Annual BBQ Cook-off

 

The McAllen Crime Stoppers invite the local community to come out and enjoy Viva McAllen Streets on Saturday, August 9th, 2014.

VIVA McAllen Streets was formed with the goal of promoting fitness, safety and healthy living by partnering with the City of McAllen. With the city's help and local transportation departments, this community event also promotes safety on the streets with the campaign "Run, Ride & Share". Together, the McAllen Crime Stoppers, the McAllen Police Department and McAllen Transit & Traffic Departments host VIVA so families across the region can enjoy a safe place to exercise and play.

Event Details

This year's VIVA event is jam-packed with fun outdoor activities for friends and family. The McAllen Crime Stoppers along with the MCPD Cycling Team have organized the Darling's Pedal Against Crime in 60 mile, 40 mile and 25 mille distances, which sets off from the McAllen Convention Center to the rural roads of La Joya. The Crime Stoppers from McAllen and La Joya ISD Campus are hosting the local favorite Cowboy Q'ing Against Crime Cook-Off. This activity is sanctioned by the International Barbecue Cookers Association (IBCA) for the best chefs in South Texas. The last of the runs, hosted by the McAllen Crime Stoppers, is the 10K Run for Justice, a run and walk through some of McAllen's safest and family-friendly neighborhoods.

VIVA McAllen Streets is presenting two special treats this year. Metro Kids Station, hosted by Metro McAllen, is a series of events such as Caricatures with Marie Antoinette, ZUMBA with Mary Zuviri, a Bike Rack Completion Swag Pack and a Mini bus rodeo.
