The 23rd annual Dia del Rio (DDR) Celebration featured a number of firsts this year. We held our first-ever river painting workshop, organized a Laredo Paddling Trail kayaking excursion, and hosted a Loving Laredo Halloween Bat Hike. We also had our long-standing events, such as the DDR Proclamation and Paso del Indio Trail Workday. RGISC's main goal for DDR events is to highlight the Rio Grande ecosystem and reconnect the community with our most valuable natural resource. Mission accomplished!!!
