Fiesta de la Flor is fast approaching.

The festival will happen this year on April 12-13. Officials with the festival say they will make a “big announcement” regarding the festival on Friday.

The two-day event honors Corpus Christi’s own Selena Quintanilla, known to her many admirers as the “Queen of Tejano.”

The inaugural festival was held in 2015. 52,000 guests attended the event, according to Visit Corpus Christi, and the festival was sold-out for its first Saturday opening.

Over 100,000 guests have attended Fiesta de la Flor, creating more than $25 million in economic impact for Corpus Christi, according to Visit Corpus Christi.

Ticket information and an event line-up is expected to be announced soon.
