CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – It’s an event attended by thousands of Rio Grande Valley residents every year. Preparations are underway for the 5th annual Fiesta De La Flor in Corpus Christi.
The two-day festival celebrates the life of famous tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez. She is known as the queen of tejano. Selena died in 1995 after being shot by her fan club president and boutique manager Yolanda Saldivar.
In 2015 the Corpus Christi visitor’s bureau began Fiesta De La Flor. It is held at North Bayfront Park in the downtown area.
This year’s celebration begins tomorrow starting at 5:30 P.M. and runs through Saturday.
