    The New York Botanical Garden hosted this weekend a Frida Khalo look-a-like contest for both children and adults to go along with their current exhibition of Frida Khalo: Art, garden, Life.

    NYC based only all women mariachi band “Mariachi Flor De Toloache” and the "Calpulli Danza Mexicana" entertained visitors with their music and dancing and a flower crown making workshop was set up for visitors to make.

    Kids of all ages along with their parents came wearing beautiful traditional Mexican costumes as they walked the red carpet in front of the judges to win prizes from the garden.
