Lubbock Arts Festival celebrates 40 years this weekend, breaks Guinness record

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Arts Festival is in town this weekend for the 40th year in a row.

Along with celebrating 40 years, the festival was the site of a world record. Engineers were able to set up a 1900-foot, continuous Hot Wheels track, which beat a 2016 Guinness World Record.

The video of that can be seen here.

From painting to music, every art medium will be on display for you to enjoy. Over 150 artist will be showing off the skills and crafts.

This family-friendly event has something for even the youngest art connoisseurs to get involved.

Michael Seymour with the Lubbock Arts Alliance said, "A lot of people think we don't want to bring the kids, how long are they going to be able to look at art, before they're busy, running around and distracted? The kids stop's really kind of remedy's that. The make and take crafts are great, they love being able to build something they can take home."

The fun begins at 10 a.m. Saturday morning and will run until 6 p.m.

Doors will also open again on Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.

Ticket prices are $4 for adults, but everyone under 12 gets in free.
