Dozens of vendors started preparing their booths at six p.m. Sunday, July 3rd, for the event which would start Monday, July 4th at 8 a.m.

After hours of work Sunday night, they returned at 4:30 Monday morning to finish.

It's become a 4th of July tradition for many in the Lubbock area, in fact, organizers estimate 150 thousand people will attend. It's also become a ritual for the owners of the Crystal Palace booth, this is the eighth year for the family to participate in 4th on Broadway.
