The South Plains Fair is open and ready for business. The Midway opened Friday and Lubbockites plus hundreds of others took advantage of it. Here's what NewsChannel 11 found out when we asked what people like most about the fair.

"We came out here with a couple buddies, brought our kids out to have some fun," said a South Plains Fair attendee.

"I like the rides, but I like the food better," said another South Plains Fair attendee.

The fair will be in Lubbock through Saturday September 28th. Admission is $5 for adults 12 and over and $2 for kids six to 11 years-old. Children under six are free. Parking is $3.

United Supermarkets is hoping you will turn your loose change into a change for the community. All day Friday Legacy Play Village organizers have been set up outside United Market Street at 50th and Indiana. They were taking donations for the playground. The money will buy supplies for the playground, which will be the largest in America. United Supermarkets is one of the first donors to the project.

Kids at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center celebrated an anniversary Friday with story time. Friday marked the 5th anniversary of the Red Raider Readers program. The kids heard a story, had cake and got a visit from Winnie the Pooh. The program encourages parents to read to their kids as early as possible.
