If the name Weslaco seems a little odd, there's a reason. The town's name is a combination of letters from the name W. E. Stewart Land Company. Weslaco's most famous resident to date is Harlon Block. You know that photo of Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima? Harlon was one of them. Weslaco is also known for the annual Texas Onion Fest, which features live music, arts and crafts, dancing horses, a car show, and an onion eating contest.
