With slightly less-hot weather this weekend, it’s a great chance to get out of the house and see what is going on in Lubbock. If you aren’t sure what you want to do, here are a couple of events happening in the Hub City on August 19th and 20th.

Lubbock Lights Alien Party:

Two Docs Brewing Co. Is celebrating the anniversary of the 'Lubbock Lights’ incident with an evening of glow sticks, beer, live music, and fun. In August and September of 1951, there was a UFO sighting in the Lubbock sky that received national attention. In hopes of potentially recreating this event, or simply reminiscing in its history, this Alien Party will start at 5:00 p.m. with lights out at 9:00 to get a better look at the sky evening sky.
