South Plains Fair: Then & Now

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Panhandle South Plains Fair really hasn't changed that much in over nine decades.

It's been 95 years since the first fair, but 2009 was on the 92nd annual Panhandle South Plains Fair, because during World War II there wasn't a fair for a few years.

To date more than 11 million people have come to what is now known as the "Granddaddy of West Texas Fairs." It's second only to the Dallas State Fair in attendance and continuous history.

From the livestock shows to live music, people are still coming out for the food, rides and exhibits.
