UTB/TSC to Cancel "First Annual Freddy Fender Festival" due to conflicts of ownership of Arts Center.

The University of Texas has sadly announced the cancellation of the First Annual Freddy Fender Festival due to the recent split between the University of Texas and The Texas South-most College.  Texas South-most College alleges that the new state of the art Art Center is on their property and that they do not give permission to the University to use the establishment for the weekend long festival that was going to showcase authentic Fender Memorabilia, and was going to have the participation of recording music sensation "Little Joe y la Familia", past members of Freddy Fender band, and local musicians "Manarrada Ensamble Mission" y "Los Cadetes del Rio Bravo".  The Festival was expected to commemorate Fender's contribution to local and global music and it was going to be an event for all ages.

The University of Texas At Brownsville is going to pursue the matter with representatives of TSTC in the next coming month, no word yet if they are going to provide a full refund for over the 600 individuals that had already purchased their tickets for the event in the next coming weeks.
