The Texas Citrus Fiesta has been held annually for the past 56 years to promote die citrus industry of the lower Rio Grande Valley. Participation is Valley-wide as each community selects an outstanding young woman to represent them as Ductless in the quest for the title of Queen Citrianna. To assist her in her reign the title of King Citrus is bestowed on a man who has made an outstanding contribution to the local citrus industry. Coincidentally, this year’s King Citrus, Mr. Wayne Showers of Mission, was a childhood acquaintance of Mrs. Dicus and an A&M classmate of Mr. Stahl.
The local dancers were among
the over 100,000 persons who viewed the "Parade of Oranges” on Saturday morning. The theme for the Fiesta was "Crown Jewels of Texas.” A grand-niece of Mrs. Dicus received the first place trophy in the Primary Division with her portrayal of Mrs. John Conway, one of the founders of the city of Mission.
