3rd Annual Summer Fest taking over downtown Lufkin this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

 Saturday barbeque, music and fun will fill downtown Lufkin in the 3rd Annual Summer Fest.

The event will kick off at 11:00 a.m. with a Battle of the Bands. The competition will feature local bands as well as bands from Tyler and the DFW area.

Officials say Summer Fest is a family friendly event and kids can enjoy activities like face painting and eating ice cream while their parents visit booths from local vendors.

"I think everybody loves to sit outside and enjoy some good food, some good barbeque and live music and it's another way to bring not only people who are from Lufkin down to the festival but people from around the state," said Tara Watson-Watkins, Executive Director.

Son of a sailor will take the stage at 8:30 Saturday night and perform classic Jimmy Buffett songs.
