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. Billie Marion Parks is wearing an evening dress made out of chili peppers, 13000 pumpkin seeds and turnips. This same dress was on the cover of the National Geographic Magazine.
