This Is The One Festival You’ll Want To Attend

There’s never going to be another one like Selena. That’s why a festival in Corpus Christi, Texas, dedicated to her is so is so awesome.

Selena Quintanilla remains queen 21 years after her death. In fact, there’s a new generation of fans that come together every year at Fiesta de la Flor in Corpus Christi to honor her.

Fiesta de la Flor is a family-friendly festival! ?‍?‍?‍?❤️?? Did you know children 7 and under get in free? #FDLF#selenaquintanilla#festival#texas#texastodo#corpuschristi#vivacc#selenaforever #selena

“When I was young, I was always trying to dance like her, dress like her, and do everything like her,” one of the 50,000 attendees told Fusion. “Now I see that my kids are taking in interest in her, but for their own reasons.”

Aside from music, fans can appreciate cool Selena fan art.

That’s like one degree of separation from the queen.

One quality that made her so iconic was that Selena taught us how to be confident in our own skin. She had no problem showing off her curves.

She wore clothes that hugged her every curve – before having a big booty was cool. “She didn’t care what people thought. If she wanted to be flashy, she was flashy,” said another fan. “If she looked good and she thought she looked good, she wore it.”

At the Fiesta de la Flor, fans show up dressed in outfits similar to the ones she once wore on stage. Like this one:

The famous jumpsuit she wore for her last concert is a top favorite. “We may not look as great, but we’re wearing it,” a fan said. “We don’t care what other people think, just like Selena,” another responded.

“She’s an empowering woman. I feel like she broke the mold for women, not just in Tejano, but in general,” her fans said.

Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino are back with their new single “Castigo” featuring Pedro Capó. The song is the first single from their long awaited album which is due to be released this summer.
