Austin Selena fans, we want your photos!

We put out a call for Selena fans to snap an Instagram photo of themselves at the Selena mural at Lady Bird Lake, and we’ve received some great ones. But we need more Selena fans to submit their photos by Friday, so that we can create and share an online photo gallery in Selena’s honor. (You don’t have to dress up like her in the photo).

On March 31, it will have been 20 years since the death of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, but her music and legacy live on in the hearts of fans who watched her rise to fame and hoped to see her reach superstardom as a crossover artist.

Here’s how you can submit your photo:

Visit the Selena mural on the Butler Hike and Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake. Find it on the west side of Pleasant Valley Road just south of the bridge over Longhorn Dam and across the street from the Krieg Softball Complex. Send us a photo of you and your friends by the mural and tag @austin360 on Instagram. Use the hashtags #SelenaForeverinATX. Your photos will appear in an online photo gallery and may also appear in print.
