City Council approved Tuesday the next lease for Fiesta de la Flor, a festival honoring Tejano superstar Selena. It will be held in April.

2018 will mark the fourth year for Fiesta de la Flor and is expected to bring in even more tourist than last year. In 2017, 55,000 people attended the event.

Paul Kluge, President of the Corpus Christi Convention & Visitors Bureau, said the festival continues to grow.

"And we're excited," Kluge said. "Things are coming."

According to Kluge, the Bureau plans on announcing the entertainment lineup next week.

2017 attendance was about the same as 2016, but more people stayed for the entire two-day festival. Visitors came from as far as New York, Chicago, and even Poland.
