After revealing the dates back in mid-June 2016, the organizers of Fiesta de la Flor have announced more information about the third annual event honoring, celebrating, and remembering the life of Selena Quintanilla.
The festival, which has garnered back-to-back success in its first two years, is making its way back to Selena's hometown for a two-day festival filled with music, food, arts, and a lot of busti-cacas!
"We are very excited with the success of this event and we are certain that 2017 will be another memorable year for Fiesta de la Flor," Paulette Kluge, CEO of the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau, said in a news release back in June.
With that said, here is everything we know (so far) about our favorite Queen of Tejano fest!
1. Mark your calendars for March!
Fiesta de la Flor is confirmed to take place from Friday, March 24th to Saturday, March 25th, so start asking for those days off from work!
2. Plan that trip, like yesterday!
The festival will take place at North Bayfront Park in Corpus Christi. So, unless you live in Selenaville, start planning that road trip or purchasing that plane ticket A.S.A.P.
3. Expect many guest appearances
Orange is the New Black star, Jackie Cruz, who's also a hardcore Selena fan, will make a guest appearance at the festival. Emmy Award-winner Jackie Guerra, who played Suzette Quintanilla in the 1997 biopic, will also attend.
4. The Selena wax figure will also be there
This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill. The Madame Tussauds Selena Wax figure will be at this year's Fiesta de la Flor as confirmed by Suzette on her Facebook page.
5. This year's lineup is poppin'!
The Quintanilla family will totally be there, but check out all of the artists who will pump up the crowd. The 2017 lineup includes La Mafia, Las Fenix, Pete Astudillo, and A.B. Quintanilla's new band, Elektro Kumbia.
6. All of this for an affordable price
The Quintanilla's and event organizers are very considerate of Selena fans that for the third year in a row, prices to the festival are very affordable. So affordable you can invite your novia/novio and their whole family! A one-day ticket is $10; whereas, a 2-day bundle is $15. Get them here.
7. Because anything for Selenas!
As always (always meaning since 2015), Fiesta de la Flor will gather the biggest Selenaholics in the world. Expect a lot of fandom, a lot of dancing, a lot of glamorous bustiers, a lot of mini-Selenas, a lot of food, a lot of Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, a lot of emotions, and again, a lot of fans. Really, if you're the "anything for Selenas" kind of person you don't want to miss it.
