This weekend is packed with fun ... and it will be well worth the effort to squeeeze them all in!

Monster Mural ... is the first thing you'll see at the Arts Festival when you arrive. Our friends at Xanadoo are the sponsors of this 20-foot-long MONSTER size mural you'll see as you come in the entire festival. AND... if you come to the festival between 10:00 and 3:00 on Saturday, photographer Al Henderson will be on hand to take a family photo! Then you can review it online and get one later if you want. Capture the moment and create a memory -- right from the start. more>

Lubbock's Idol
If you're a fan of the tv show ... this "Lubbock version" may be right up your alley. The first 100 registrants get to sing. There are 200 chairs where spectators can watch and listen. But the winner gets a real treat - a trip to the American Idol finals! This should be verrrrry interesting. You must be 16 to enter. If you know of someone who is a "star" waiting to happen, tell them to come! For more information, call Ramar at 745-3434. more>
