She is on the air on a daily basis,” Dan Peña, KSAB Program Director, told Tejano Nation. “But, since the whole city is celebrating her life and legacy, we’re honoring her by playing her music round the clock. It’s our way of welcoming the thousands of people from all across the country visiting during the fiesta.”

Beginning at 6:00 pm Friday afternoon, KSAB will air only songs by the beloved singer from Corpus Christi, during the music festival honoring her life and music.

“It’s all Selena and maybe some Kumbia Kings,” Peña added. “We also announce the schedule of events and any parking issues as they come up.”

Fiesta De La Flor hosted over 50,000 fans of the Tejano star in 2015 and 2016. For 2017, the Corpus Christi Convention and Visitors Bureau (CC CVB) anticipates more than 70,000 fans will attend the third annual festival.

La Mafia, Jimmy Gonzalez Y Grupo Mazz, Megan Chapa and more are scheduled to perform on the first night of the festival on Friday, March 24. The Saturday, March 25, lineup boasts A.B. Quintanilla Y Elektro Kumbia, legendary artists Adalberto and The Latin Breed, Pete Astudillo, Las Fenix, David Marez, Isabel Marie and many more.

Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 24 and 10 a.m. Saturday, March 25 at North Bayfront Park in downtown Corpus Christi. Daily General Admission tickets will be available for $10.00 or $15.00 for a two-day pass per festival-goer. Children 7 and under will receive complimentary admission.
