The Cowboy Symposium continued Friday with some local yodelers. More festivities are planned for this weekend including a horse shoeing contest on Saturday and the chuck wagon cook off on Sunday morning.

The Air Force Thunderbirds will put on an air show spectacle at Lubbock International Airport. Some of the best pilots in the world will maneuver through the sky at speeds topping 500 mph. Gates open at 9 a.m., and the air show, with several different events, will continue to approximately 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are available at the gate. They are $12 for adults and $5 for kids under 12. All proceeds benefit the Silent Wings Museum at the airport.

You can also help in the fight against diabetes. The Lubbock Council of the American Diabetes Association is hosting the Walk for Diabetes. Participants walk about three miles at MacKenzie Park. Check in is at 8 a.m. Saturday. The walk starts at 9 a.m. Each walker who brings in $100 in pledges gets a free t-shirt.

If none of that sounds good, you might try building a house. Habitat for Humanity's Celebration of Solidarity begins Saturday. Habitat will hold an opening ceremony at 7 a.m. at Duke and North Avenue U. The event kick's off habitat's seven day building blitz.

Don't forget the Vatican Exhibit is still open, but not for long. The rare paintings return to Italy on September 15th. If you would like to reserve tickets call Texas Tech at 742-3610.
