Lubbock is flipping its way into to the record books. It is such an amazing feat, even Aunt Jemima would be proud. Lubbock's Lions Club Pancake Festival will soon take its place in the Guinness Book of World Records. During the festival last February, 30,734 pancakes were served, and according to Guinness that's a record! The annual event raises money every year for local charities.

A Lubbock native is showing off his vocal talents on a national stage. Brian Lee now lives in Granbury, but he graduated from Coronado High School. He appeared on the "Today Show" Friday morning for the Superstar competition. The six contestants will sing a song and then "Today Show" viewers will vote on line for the one they like best. Brian said being from Lubbock, picking a song was an easy choice, Buddy Holly, one of the greatest rock and roll legends of all time. The winner gets a concert on the plaza and a recording session with Warner Brothers.

Trick or treating may be over, but Friday night Halloween tradition continues. The Llano Estacado Institute for the Performing Arts presents "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." The 1975 cult favorite can be seen Saturday night at the George Sorenson Theatre at 1511 Texas Avenue. Showings are at 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $12, which includes a prop bag for the interactive audience and refreshments.
