This weekend, the 32nd Annual Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair will take over downtown San Antonio, through March 18, 2012, as hundreds of bands and thousands of fans from near and far fill historic Market Square to hear the three-day Tejano music marathon. But before the first band takes the stage, fans can attend two kick-off events to get into the spirit:
