23 years may have passed since Selena Quintanilla died, but her memory continues to live on.
Tributes to Selena are everywhere this time of year, as the anniversary approaches of her murder at age 23 on March 31, 1995, by a fan club president.
Fans adored Selena for being talented but humble, ambitious and close to her family. She became an icon for Mexicans and many Latinos, seamlessly balancing a tremendous career in two cultures.
Today, fans religiously buy items in honor of her. They rush to H-E-B stores for bags with her face, buy out a Selena-inspired makeup collection overnight and wait hours in line to see her wax figure and dress up like her on Halloween and other occasions.
Fiesta de la Flor is one of the biggest festivals in Texas that honors Selena. There's a few ticket options still for sale, if you're determined to make the drive to Corpus Christi in April.
Here in Dallas, the #214Selena event pays homage to the legendary Mexican-American star with movie watch parties and Selena talent shows. The five-year-old festival honors the life and music of Selena.
