City to host 23rd annual Fiesta de La Feria

LA FERIA — Car lovers won’t be disappointed with this year’s car show at the annual Fiesta de La Feria.

More the 150 cars are expected to participate in the event.

Event organizer John Ftacek said the car show has been getting better and better every year.

“We expect over 150 cars this year. I have a Model A 1931 and there will be all kinds of hot rods. You name, it’s going to be in,” Ftacek said.

This year marks the 23rd year the city hosts the annual event organized by a group of city volunteers.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 27. It starts with an opening ceremony from Mayor Victor Hernandez and prayer officiated by Father Franco from the Catholic church.

“It’s about 30 of us that meet every week to plan the fiesta,” Ftacek said. “We started in November and meet for lunch to plan monthly.”
