On Tuesday, Feb. 28, the Dazzling Dolphins, a Red Hat Society Chapter from South Padre Island held their annual Red Hat Beach Party at Schlitterbahn Beach Resort. Ladies from several Red Hat Chapters in the Rio Grande Valley attended the event.

The theme of this year’s event was Mexican Fiesta and each of the ladies was dressed in festive fiesta wear of all designs and colors.

They were served a meal of cheese enchiladas, rice, beans, beef and chicken tacos, and brownies.

Before the meeting started, Davis Sellers and Doyle Heim provided music with a guitar and accordion duet.

Honored as the oldest Red Hatter attending the party, 90-year-old Betty Hardin was presented a gift. Then the youngest Red or Pink Hatter, Trina Wybierala, also received a gift.

After the meal each group got up to model their costumes and have their pictures made. A number of different Red Hat groups attended the Red Hat Beach Party, which was hosted by the Dazzling Dolphins of South Padre Island.

Green Gate Grove of Mission was recognized as the group that drove the farthest, followed by the Rio Valley Fillies of Mission. Other groups attending included the Ravishing Relics of Alamo, Rio Red Hat Society from Donna, Pine to Palm Red Hatters from Weslaco, Palmdale Patooties of La Feria, Queens of Hearts from Alamo Country Club, Conch Pretenders of South Padre Island, and the Red Hat Dollies from San Benito.
