Lamesa to host Chicken Fried Steak Festival, Balloon Rally

LAMESA, TX (KCBD) - Tickets are still available at the Lamesa Area Chamber of Commerce office for the evening meal that kicks off Lamesa's Original Chicken Fried Steak Festival.

That chicken fried steak meal, which is sponsored by the Chamber, will be served from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. next Friday, April 29, in the Forrest Park Community Center.

The caterer for this year's meal will be River Smith's Chicken and Catfish in Lubbock, which also prepared the chicken fried steak meal for the previous two years' events.

The menu provided by River Smith's for the meal offers a four-ounce cubed steak, hand battered and fried, along with side dishes of mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, rolls and River Smith's famous puffs. Three kinds of cobbler – apple, peach and cherry – will be offered for dessert.

The price for tickets for the meal remains the same as it has been the previous two years at $12 for adults and $7 for children. Tickets for the dinner only are available through the Chamber and may be purchased at the Chamber office, 123 Main Avenue.

All ticket purchases must be made with cash or check, since the Chamber is not set up to take credit cards.

Out-of-town ticket purchasers can call the Chamber at (806) 872-2181 to reserve the number of tickets they want and then mail in their payment, Adams said.

You can also sign up for the Balloon Rally that will take place April 29 through May 1.
