Dallas is celebrating all things Selena this weekend.
We all know about Fiesta De La Flor in Corpus Christi and its purpose to celebrate local legend Selena Quintanilla Pérez. But if you can't make the drive to Corpus Christi you're in luck because Dallas is having a massive festival of their own called 214Selena that is completely dedicated to the queen of Tejano music.
The festival will span over three days all across Dallas. On March 29th you can join in the fun for free and sing all your favorite Selena songs at Oak Cliff Brewing Co.'s karaoke party. The event will start at 6 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. You can expect lots of music as well as food and giveaways.
