As the city that Selena called home, there was no better place to hold this special tribute festival.
And the turnout was amazing with an estimated 50,000 attendees.

They’re so AMAZING!
Later in the evening, people got to see actor and singer, Jackie Cruz, perform her cover of Selena’s famous song, “Como La Flor.”
Impromptu moment with Los Dino's and Elektro Kumbia…This was probably the scariest thing I ever had to do in my life! Being embraced by Selena fans was so beautiful and unexpected!

Because a Selena music festival wouldn’t be complete without iconic Selena fashion. ✨

These women SLAYED! There’s no doubt Selena would be proud.
For those who could not travel to Hollywood to see Selena’s wax figure, the wax figure was brought to them at La Fiesta de la Flor.
A post shared by Krystell A. Cera (@krystellacera) on
Question is…how did they manage to take the wax figure all the way from Hollywood to Texas without it melting and falling apart?
And for those who wanted to take a little recuerdito of the festival with them, the festival featured vendors selling everything from Selena t-shirts to Selena bottle sleeves.

From day to night, La Fiesta de la Flor had Selena fans smiling, singing, laughing and dancing. And those who couldn’t attend had a serious case of FOMO.
