Here’s What Went Down at Fiesta de la Flor – Days 1 & 2

More than 50,000 fans celebrated Selena Quintanilla at the Fiesta de la Flor in Corpus Christi, Texas. Fans endured storms and even a tornado warning to honor the Queen of Tejano music, who was killed 20 years ago.

The line to get into the festival was insane.

Still, everyone was muy, muy excited!

The festival opened with a special guest.

There was plenty to do before the performances.

But the show-stopper was Selena’s music.

Las Fenix were one of the first to hit the stage.

Los Lobos followed up.

Then Mother Nature made a special appearance.

Still, fans would do it all over again.

Before the festival, the Quintanilla family held a press conference.

As expected, day two had a bigger turn out.

Performances kicked off with Chicas Rock.

Clarissa Serna then took the stage.

Nina Diaz followed up and got the crowd moving.

Dance! #FiestaDeLaFlorCC @ninadiazmusic A video posted by Fiesta de la Flor (@fiestaflorcc) on

A few clouds started rolling in during Stephanie Montiel’s performance.

Then it started pouring.

Soaking wet and cold…because anything for Salinas!
