Bears, tigers, goats all have their fans on fairgrounds
Herb Higgs, general manager of the Panhandle-South Plains Fair, indicated his staff is planning a major celebration when the 100th regional fair opens in 2017.
That said, he has changed some of the booking of Fair Park Coliseum entertainment during this year’s 97th annual fair, which opens on Sept. 19 and continues through Sept. 27.
When Higgs arrived in Lubbock in 2001 (actually taking the reigns in 2002), Lubbock’s regional fair had, almost since its inception, emphasized country music.
Tejano became a yearly attraction in 1989.
