Even though Lubbock’s temperamental spring weather is upon us with a cold front and rain, that doesn’t mean Lubbock will be staying home all weekend. There are a variety of great events you can attend in and around Lubbock, and I’m going to give you some information on a couple of them so you can make plans with your friends and family.
