Easter Bash Reaches 19th Rockin' Year

A long time Lubbock tradition, Easter Bash is celebrating its 19th year. The event has bands, barbecues, and vendors that start on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and go until 11:00 p.m.

Furlis Elis and his barbecue business have never missed an Easter Bash. "This is the 19th year, we've all aged, but my kids are all here helping and my sister came out. We enjoy the event and thank the Lord for the weather," explained Elis.

The event stared as a block party, and has now grown into an event that reaches up to 6,000 people.

"It features local musicians. It got so big we had to move it out of town. We started when we were 18. We are now family men, but if we don't do Easter Bash someone will," says Easter Bash Coordinator, Tim Cambron

Easter bash has moved all around town. This year, it was held at Buffalo Springs Lake, and fans we talked were exited to see the change.

"I've never been out to this part of the lake, I'm looking forward to it," remarked one Easter Bash goer.

Because the event was changed last minute, coordinators were unsure of the turn-out, but thanks to great weather, fans and vendors didn't miss a beat.

"I wasn't going to come until I walked outside this morning," said another Easter Bash participant.

Easter Bash coordinators say even though they themselves live out of town, fans should expect to see the 20th year event next spring.
