Terrific Things Corpus Christi Gave the World: Selena

by Visit Corpus Christi Texas

So you think you know this city? Are you ready to earn your graduate degree in all-things Corpus Christi? Everyone knows what’s to love, with over 100 miles of gulf shore and bayside beaches ringing our Coastal Bend, not to mention an average year-round temperature of 72.15°. But do you know what else makes this city so special?

The gorgeous voice that launched a million tributes and continues to garner loyal followings decades after her 1990s impact, belongs to Corpus Christi’s very own Selena. And this town adores her, with commemorations all over the place, including tributes at restaurants, murals, bus placards and bus benches, the Selena Museum, the Mirador de la Flor statue and memorial on the bayfront and of course, the annual two-day Fiesta de la Flor music festival.
