Description: An Entry in Weslaco's annual "Birthday Party" fashion show. Organized by the Chamber of Commerce to highlight the fruit and vegetables grown in the Rio Grande Valley, area citizens created and modeled clothing made from local fruit, vegetables, and flowers. Claricia Balli is wearing a suit made of shattered green fern. The lapels and her purse are made of mums and the hat and shoes are of the fern trimmed in mums.
