Enjoy summer in Lubbock, Texas! Tomorrow the entire country will celebrate the 4th of July. This day is where the United States liberated itself from England's rule. Lubbock, Texas has the largest free parade and street fair in the state. Thousands of people and pets will be walking the closed off area on Broadway Street from University to Avenue Q. Come and see some of the culture of Lubbock and enjoy music and food. Fireworks will be at Mackenzie Park off East Broadway at dark.

In addition to summer fireworks it is also time for summer vegetables. Support our local farmers and buy peaches and produce from local food stands. Visit Sunburst Market where there are fresh eggs and lots of Lubbock-soil vegetables. The manager also said there will soon be black-eyed peas and watermelon available. Go see what they have to offer and take a camera because it is a beautiful market.

Fall season does not begin until the South Plains Fair comes to town. Don't miss out on the opportunity to mingle and mix with one of the oldest traditions for the people of Lubbock. This year the fair is open from September 20th-29th. If you come at the right time you can catch all the live shows including a tiger show, sea lion show and a monkey show. If you're really lucky you will catch a glimpse of Rock-it Robot. So elusive that this is the only picture available to show.....Maybe you can get a better one when you come to the fair!
