Last week I noticed something interesting. There were three major events happening in Lubbock, and all three were successful.
It's been an attraction in Lubbock for almost a century and the South Plains Fair drew in tens of thousands of people again for another successful year.
The United Spirit Arena was packed with folks excited to see Dirks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.
But I'd like to concentrate on the Chamber of Commerce Hub City barbecue. Here's an example of a home-grown idea that has turned into an annual appointment for hundreds of businesses in Lubbock, and it keeps growing every year.
Here's the thing I've noticed about the Lubbock area. When events are done right, people around here support them.
The Hub City barbecue is a perfect example, and the results speak for themselves. Downtown streets filled with thousands of business men and women enjoying a West Texas pass time while networking with new colleagues.
So congratulations to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce for this huge success. Here's to many more years of slow-cooked barbecue and well-built business relationships.
