Pearland International Festival
The Pearland International Festival was conceived as a celebration of world cuisines, music, and culture. For its second annual fete, its focus is Mexico: mariachi bands will play and visitors can compete in a Grito Mexicano—or Mexican screaming—contest. There's also a jalapeño-eating contest, whose competitors are strictly forbidden from hiding ice packs in their cheeks beforehand, and noncompetitive eaters can enjoy food from Asian, Middle Eastern, European, and African restaurants in abundance. Throughout the fest, performers representing every bubble in the United States' melting pot take the stage to provide a lively soundtrack. Musical guests, for instance, include the Tex-Mex sounds of headliner "Grupo La Calma," as well as Bollywood and Panamanian Folklorico artists.
