Texas Citrus Fiesta 2013


This weekend is the annual Texas Citrus Fiesta. The celebration reflects our city's agricultural roots in the citrus industry.

Tomorrow at 7 pm, there will be the coronation of King Citrus and Queen Citrianna at the Mission Neuhaus Center, which is located on the Mission High School Campus, at 1802 Cleo Dawson. Admission is $5.

The Texas Citrus Fiesta Parade of Oranges starts Saturday at 3 PM from the 2 Mile Road going South along Conway Avenue. The parade is the biggest attraction; however, there are other events including a Vaquero Cook-off and Fun Fair vendors around the Leo Peña Veterans Park. The parade and other events are free for the public.

The Mission Chamber of Commerce is donating bandwidth for public WiFi during the event.
