Hours before the largest free festival in Texas kicked off, hundreds of volunteers and vendors still scrambled to set up for the 15th Annual 4th on Broadway celebration. 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.

4th on Broadway requires a lot of manpower, 50 committee members and around 800 volunteers help put on the event. 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.

Crystal Palace Vendor, Julie Tillery said, "It's just a special event, we have lots of family coming in, so we all get together and do this just for the fun of it. Then later we have our bar-b-que. It gets us all together."

The celebration features over 40 booths selling various food and novelty items.
