The Museum of South Texas History will host the ¡Cascarón! Workshop at 2 p.m. Friday, April 2, on Facebook Live.
The workshop will feature additional guidance and historical traditions of decorating cascarónes, the Easter tradition of coloring eggs. If you miss the program, it will be posted on the museum’s Facebook page and website at mosthistory.org/special-events-programs. This program is part of the ¡Cascarón! (Easter) celebrations.
Between April 1 to April 3, museum staff will pass out complimentary ¡Cascarón! kits to museum visitors, while supplies last. The kits will include a dozen cascarónes, or eggshells, instruction sheets and supplies necessary to fill and decorate Easter eggs. Families are also encouraged to use the kit supplies to follow along with the workshop.
This programming is made possible by Feeding Fiestas, a partnership with H-E-B. Feeding Fiestas has allowed the museum to explore South Texas regional traditions and celebrations tied to food.

About Museum of South Texas History
The Museum of South Texas History is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. It is located downtown Edinburg at 200 North Closner Boulevard on the Hidalgo County Courthouse square. Founded in 1967 as the Hidalgo County Historical Museum in the 1910 Hidalgo County Jail, the museum has grown over the decades through a series of expansions to occupy a full city block. In 2003, following the completion of a 22,500 square foot expansion, the museum was renamed the Museum of South Texas History to better reflect its regional scope. Today, the museum preserves and presents the borderland heritage of South Texas and northeastern Mexico through its permanent collection and the Margaret H. McAllen Memorial Archives and exhibits spanning prehistory through the 20th century.
