HIDALGO Only half an hour since the event opened, Texas Workforce Solutions counted more than 2,000 who attended the Economic Resource and Career Fair at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo.

Lines stretched far into the parking lot of State Farm Arena as potential job seekers waited for their shot at the 3,000-plus jobs available.

Edinburg PD and Human Resources were among the more than 100 companies or agencies who participated in the event.
