Finally, the weekend wraps up on Sunday with Selena Day as we host a lookalike contest, lowrider show, and vendor market at Country Burger in Oak Cliff, a widely recognized hub of Selena memorabilia. This portion of the event is all ages, and from 1pm to 5pm. The Lookalike Contest will host contestants presenting their impressions of the late singer through song, dance, and likeness. Car Clubs will be present with their award-winning lowriders while vendors will make up a Selena themed pop-up market.
