The Tejano Explosion 2011 has all of that. And though it is

 know mostly as one of the largest outdoor music festivals during Fiesta, it is really a huge block party for family fun.

The music mix runs from blues and rock to Tex-Mex, conjunto and norteno. The lineup this year features old familiar friends such as Ramon Ayala, Los Aguilares, Ricky Naranjo Y Los Gamblers,
