The El Paso Museum of History (EPMH), in collaboration with the El Paso Streetcar, invites the public to the Lucha Libre: Streetcar Ride and Pop-up Exhibit.
Fans will have the opportunity to experience Lucha Libre like never before with a ride on the streetcar and meet El Paso native luchador, Sin Cara on Thursday, June 27 at 5:30 p.m.
Following the ride along, there will be an opportunity for photos, autographs and the unveiling of a pop-up Lucha Libre exhibit at the Museum of History.
“El Paso is a city with a vibrant culture and community, and the programming at EPMH reflects that,” said Museum of History Director Vladimir von Tsurikov. “It has been exciting to collaborate with a hometown hero such as Sin Cara and develop an exhibition that entails the tradition and significance of luchador here in El Paso.”
The streetcar ride-along with Sin Cara begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Franklin and El Paso streetcar stop (across the street from EPMH). Spots are limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.
At 7:00 p.m., following the streetcar ride, Sin Cara will be at the EPMH. A Lucha Libre Pop-Up exhibit will be unveiled at 7:30 p.m., kicking off a social hour with live music, food and a cash bar.
The exhibit includes items from Sin Cara’s personal collection, which will serve as a preview for the upcoming Lucha Libre exhibition at EPMH scheduled to open in 2021.
Sin Cara grew up in Segundo Barrio and graduated from Burges High School where he began his wrestling career.
He became an International wrestling competitor in both the United States and Mexico and began his career with WWE in 2009.
Along with wrestling, Sin Cara is also passionate about giving back to the El Paso community.
“The shared love for Lucha Libre is something that unites the people of El Paso. Being able to come back to my roots and showcase that means everything,” said Sin Cara.
