Selena Fans Flock to Country Burger

Selena Fans Flock to Country Burger

Hundreds walked through the doors of Oak Cliff’s Country Burger to celebrate the legacy of the “Queen of Tejano,” Selena Quintanilla-Perez, on Saturday, March 25. For moments crowding from wall to wall with burger-eating patrons and cumbia-dancing Selena fans, the celebration marked the 4th anniversary at Country Burger for the event and the 22-year of the singer's death at the hands of then fan club president Yolanda Saldivar.

The tribute, under the name “Selena / Fotos y Recuerdos” after the Selena song meaning “photos and memories,” included lowriders in the parking lot, an art show, vendors selling Selena shirts and art, a mural unveiling by Arturo Donjuan and Ponchaveli Studios, and a Selena talent contest where 6-year-old Azlie Garcia took home the big prize.

Selena Quintanilla already conquered the Latin charts and was prepared to do the same in mainstream music when a stalker killed her on March 31, 1995. This year Country Burger celebrated Selena with a mural dedicated to her by Dallas graffiti artists Arturo DonJuan and Theo Ponchaveli.
