The virtual Loteria will start Saturday at 11 a.m. on the Kingsville visitors center Facebook page. Entry is free and the city of Kingsville will be giving away prizes.

"Just log on, pick your Loteria characters. and be the first to claim a winning virtual card – and you can win anything from local restaurant gift cards, award winning Wild Horse Distillery, and of course some great King Ranch prizes.
