A Selena 'Fest' Is Coming To Houston This Month With A Massive Market & Loteria
Anything for Selenas.
Selena is, and always will be, the Queen of Texas. She's an icon everywhere, but especially in the Lone Star State, and us natives love to celebrate her and her music any time we get the chance. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that there's an upcoming fest in Houston that's Selena-inspired and inviting fans to come out and celebrate her amazing life.
On Friday, February 21, East End Studio Gallery is hosting a Selena Loteria and Mercadito. The celebration is going to be from 5 to 10:30 p.m. and the event is, of course, going to have plenty of rounds of Loteria to play.
You'll also have the opportunity to get on the dance floor and perform the iconic Techno Cumbia thanks to an incredible live DJ who will be playing nothing but Tejano music all evening long.
In between rounds of Loteria and dancing, you can browse coolgoods at the little market that's going to be set up with local vendors selling a variety of goods.
The market will last for most of the event, from 5 to 10 p.m., so you'll have plenty of time to browse!
Not only can you listen and dance to all of your favorite Selena tunes, but you'll also get to watch her incredible movie.
6:30 p.m. is when the Loteria playing will officially begin. You'll have three hours to compete against others, so until 9:30 p.m., and there's a variety of playing options to choose from.
The "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" package is $30 and comes with one card you can use to play with all night, two drinks, and a small goodie bag.
There's also the "Como la Flor" package that gets you everything above as well as a large tote goodie bag instead of a small one.
Prizes will be given out to all Loteria winners and we're sure they're going to be amazing.
Whatever you end up leaving with, you can add it to your growing Selena shrine as soon as you get home. I mean, we all have one of those, right?
Plus, whatever you find at the Mercadito from one of the many local vendors will also make a great new addition.
We can hardly wait to spend all day celebrating.
