LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Sunday is Buddy Holly's birthday, but the celebration started early at the Buddy Holly Center on Saturday.

Children had the opportunity to take a step back in time to commemorate the legend and the celebrate the 1950s by creating their own poodle skirt or hot rod.

But the celebration doesn't end here.

"Tomorrow is Buddy's actual birthday, so we have a birthday party for him. Tomorrow we will have cupcakes, you can make shoebox guitars, you can go in the Allison House, we now have an instrument petting zoo, which are different instruments you can pick up and handle."

Sunday's event is free for everyone. It kicks off at 1 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
