McALLEN Families are invited to view the beautiful nature photographs taken by our Valley children at Quinta Mazatlan, Thursday August 18th, 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Valley Land Fund will be announcing the winners on a big outdoor movie screen with a multi-media show under the stars.

Every child that submitted photographs will have one winning image in the video. Through the generous support provided by the Robert L. Townsend Endowment Fund cash prize opportunities will be awarded to those that are tops in the field. Plus, every child that entered the contest will have one winning image on display.

Youth of the valley spent the summer outdoors taking photographs of Birds, Mammals, Other Wildlife, People & Nature, Landscapes & Plant Life, Humor, Water and Digital Photo Art. Over 130 children entered the photo contest, each submitting their best 8 photographs judged by professional photographers and leaders in the community.

Enjoy an inspirational evening where the children will share the wonders of our brush country through their eyes. Quinta Mazatlan is located at 600 Sunset in McAllen, one block south of La Plaza Mall on 10th Street. For more information call 956-681-3370 or visit
