A-J reporter reviews as many rides as he's allowed at the fair in Lubbock
The rides are your only escape.
Face it — the Panhandle South Plains Fair, like all fairs, is messy. It’s a maze of cheap stuffed animals, blinking lights and funnel cakes, shrouded in a sticky cloud of fry-cooker grease and condiment residue.
In my opinion, your best bet is to slog through the marshes, past discarded half-eaten pretzels and cheese-crusted nacho trays, over to the Midway, where you can behold a wealth of mechanical wonders provided by Miller Spectacular Shows.
