Over the weekend the 39th Annual Lubbock Arts Festival was held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

I must say I think this was the best one I've attended in the twenty plus years I've lived in Lubbock.

I realize I probably say that every year after attending that year's event, but that's because every year the festival brings in more and more artists, who provide a little more humph to their art then the previous year.

The kids section (which was outstanding) provided an opportunity for children to explore and create and by doing so has the ability to open the door for creativity, which is how young children can discover a passion for art.

If you missed the Festival this year, I highly encourage you to plan on attending next year.

The fact that it will be the 40th pretty much ensures it will be even better.
