We have the chance to celebrate a number of occasions and people every year. From Easter to Thanksgiving, Presidents’ Day to Columbus Day, there always seems to be a holiday to celebrate.
But there’s only one day of the year specifically set apart to honor the women in our lives who are mothers. This May 14th, join together with your Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce to celebrate Mother’s Day, as we take a little extra time to show our appreciation for all the mothers across the Rio Grande Valley and the rest of nation.
Mother’s day is a day of celebration that truly affects people all across the country. In fact, 84% of people last year last reported that they planned to celebrate Mother’s Day in some capacity.
It might surprise some people to find out that Mother’s Day is the third largest retail holiday in America. Equally surprising might be the fact that Mother’s Day is one holiday that people prefer to go out and actually look for a gift in a store. As is always the case, there is the option to stay close to home to do your shopping.
The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce knows that you can find great gifts for Mom right here in town; spreading the love you feel and supporting your community as well. If you are having trouble planning Mother’s Day or just looking for additional options, consider the following members of the Mission Chamber.

One of the first things we all think about when celebrating Mother’s Day is what and where we are going to eat. Few things build and reflect close bonds than sharing food. Hacienda Del Patron offers the perfect opportunity to do this with the mothers in your life while having a truly unique dining experience.
We are no strangers to Mexican food here in Mission and the Rio Grande Valley but you are promised a true taste of Mexican cuisine at this restaurant. The owners and management reflect a true love of Mexican culture and heritage and the original essence of haciendas.
You can order everything from beef wellington and lobster bisque to Oaxacan mole. There are a variety of stuffed pepper plates and plenty of breakfast options, in case you want to schedule your day around an early meal, instead of one later in the day.
