CLEAR LAKE — The family of Ritchie Valens will allow the Surf Ballroom & Museum to exhibit and showcase several items belonging to him.

The family will present the items at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb., 1, at the Surf during this year’s Winter Dance Party.

A wallet Valens traveled with and carried during the 1959 Winter Dance Party Tour, along with a bow tie, records and family photos are just a few of the pieces that will be kept on display at the venue where he performed his last concert.

These items will be housed near items loaned by J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson’s family just over a year ago.
