Selena Quintanilla's wax figure is leaving the Madame Tussauds installation in Hollywood to travel to the late singer's hometown Corpus Christi, Texas for the annual Fiesta de la Flor.
The third edition of the two-day festival, which honors and celebrates the life of the "Queen of Tejano" music, is set to take place March 24-25.
"At Madame Tussauds, our figures represent icons who have made a significant impact on our culture," Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, said in a statement. "That perfectly describes Selena. Her influence has transcended generations and her passionate fans continue to be inspired by her to this day... We recognize this, and in response, we are proud to join her fans in celebrating her legacy by immortalizing her."
