20190123 Legendzz Band 3744What can be more fun that the Texas Citrus Fiesta Fun Fair?

The Fiesta Fun Fair is always held on the same day as the Parade of Oranges, Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The fair will be held in the newly renovated La Placita Park, located across from H-E-B on Conway at 9th Street (Business 83). Admission is free.

Winter Texans will especially enjoy the folkloric dancers from Mission Parks & Recreation, performing at 11:30 a.m., well before the 3 p.m. parade start time. They will be followed by several local bands performing country music and a variety of other styles.

Immediately following the parade, the popular group, Hot Rodz will perform from 4 to 5 p.m. They will be followed by Texas Legend playing country and a variety of other genres. A group with a similar name and similar blend of music styles, Legendzz Band, will then take the stage from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

If you’re into cumbia music, El Grupo Itza has your number, performing at 7:30. There’s a rap group that likely won’t appeal to our winter visitors, but come back at 9 p.m. to hear South Gate perform some real country.

Of course, the Fun Fair always has some great food vendors; look for turkey legs, onion blossoms, tacos, and brisket sandwiches, kettle corn, spiros (potatoes on a stick), corn on the cob, burgers, tamales and more.

Several new exhibitors will be on hand at the Fun Fair this year. One new exhibitor will have oyster shells with pearls in them. The patron digs for an oyster shell and opens it to see what kind of pearl is inside. The vendor has jewelry settings and can make the pearl into a ring or a necklace.

Another new vendor is Cool Cat Caricatures, where a picture can be drawn on a pillow.

Bumble Bee will have a small car show. Paparazzi will have jewelry, headbands sunglasses and other items for sale. Light Boys will make name rings.

Local artisans will be offering their arts and crafts.

New this year are vendors selling candy from Spain and Mexico. Paletas will be offering ice pops made from natural fruit juices.

There will be a full lineup of entertainment available.

The annual Texas Citrus Fiesta Fun Fair will be held at the Leo Pena “La Placita” Park in downtown Mission from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
