San Antonio music legend honored during last Fiesta event

Flaco Jimenez honored at MissionFest 2013

This year's Fiesta culminated with MissionFest 2013 at Mission San Jose where organizers honored a San Antonio living music legend.

Flaco Jimenez was honored for his accomplishments in music from the Conjunto scene to his work with the Texas Tornadoes and his popular accordion. 

Jimenez says he doesn't feel like a legend, but that he was happy to be recognized in his hometown.

Jimenez offered advice to young musicians, to focus on music, keep playing and stay on the right path. 

MissionFest organizers say they were glad to have such a large crowd to honor Jimenez.

"It's good to have him here, bless our festival on such a beautiful day for the people of the South Side."   

Mayor Julian Castro, Congressman Lloyd Dogget and other city and county officials were in attendance.
