The Winter Texan Fiesta, to be held Saturday, Feb. 22, promises to be an exciting event featuring Valley performers with music and songs representing a variety of genres from Rock n Roll, Classic Country, Bluegrass, 50s & 60s favorites, and a tribute to the “Man in Black” himself, Johnny Cash. The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce rolls out the red carpet for Winter Texans at this annual appreciation event by providing a great lineup of popular performers, free admission and free box lunches – while 3,000 lunch tickets last.
The event will once again be held at Leo Peña Placita Park on Conway Avenue in downtown Mission, across from the H-E-B store just south of the railroad tracks. Bring lawn chairs or cushions.
Rich Bellert, known for both his serious and humorous cowboy poetry, will be emceeing the event. The show begins at 12:45 p.m. with a welcome from Mission Mayor Norberto “Beto” Salinas and other city dignitaries.
Performers this year include the Golden Era Rock & Roll Band and Red Johnson as well as Lindley Creek, playing Bluegrass and Capitan Tom Tepper in their “Memories Show.”
The box lunch meal will be provided by Ace’s Barbecue, but attendees must pick up their meal ticket in advance at the Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce, at 202 W. Tom Landry. Stop by the chamber offices or call them at 956-585-2727 to see if tickets are still available.
Door prizes also will be given away, but participants must register with the chamber’s GoMission Rewards Card program in order to win some special prizes that day. Call the chamber at 956-585-2727 for more information.
