Lubbock Centennial Kick-off Event: A Truly "Must See" Experience!

This Sunday evening's Centennial kick-off event will be one for the ages...an incredibly exciting and historical event! The irony is that there are only about 10,000 seats in the coliseum...yet we have 200,000+ residents in our fine city. The number of folks who can squeeze into the venue is fractional...yet, in my opinion, EVERY Lubbock citizen should be there! There are only a few tickets left to this historic event...so please think about taking in the festivities. The announced talent lineup is incredible...with many un-announced guests and no doubt numerous surprises yet to unfold. Perhaps the most amazing part of the whole deal? Tickets are a mere $5 each....easily affordable for each and every person who cares to attend the festivities. I encourage everyone reading this postcard to seize the moment...and grab what tickets are left as of this writing. Folks, this Sunday evening will be special by any measure. Tickets are available at all Select-A-Seat outlets in the area while they last...so don't miss out on this historic moment! - Shane West
