KCBD NewsChannel 11's Live Community Coverage Tour hits the road for the tenth summer in a row.
The Lubbock television station will visit five different towns in five days during the week of July 23–July 27. Starting on Monday, the tour is in Muleshoe, then Abernathy, Denver City, Post then Levelland on Friday.
Over the years, the Lubbock television station has explored twenty different towns and shared their stories and uncovered interesting facts about the communities that make the South Plains great.
Thursday, July 24 will be the tour's fourth stop in Post. For the first time, this year's event will be at the Post City Park at East 3rd Street and South Broadway (U.S. Highway 84). According to the station's press release "this year will again be like no other."
In addition to broadcasting live the 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm newscasts, KCBD invites the public to enjoy a free dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. which is provided by United Supermarkets, Pepsi, and Gandy’s and to have the opportunity to meet and socialize with NewsChannel 11 Anchors Karin McCay, Abner Euresti, John Robison, and Pete Christy.
After dinner, everyone's invited to "stick around for varying entertainment and fun for the kids, games, and plenty of free stuff," according to the press release. Texas Tech Athletics will bring their inflatable jumpers including a 30’ by 20’ obstacle course for the kids.
South Plains John Deere Dealers have joined the tour and will be in each town with a sample of their inventory of tractors. This year, members of the each community will have the chance to enter and win a John Deere Gator XUV 550 S4. During the 10:00 pm broadcast at each town, a name will be drawn from that community to become a semi finalist. On day five in Levelland at 6:00 pm, one name will be drawn from the five semi finalists and that person will win the John Deere Gator. Also, each semi finalist will win a pair of season tickets to the Texas Tech 2012 Football season.
Another facet of this year’s event is Anderson Brothers Jewelers Finders Keepers game. This contest is designed to showcase each community while rewarding the smart and savvy individuals of the town. In each town beginning at noon, a piece of jewelry will be hidden in a public place of significance. Every hour beginning at noon a clue will be revealed on kcbd.com and through email as to where this piece of jewelry is located. The first person, who locates the prize, wins.
On Thursday, donations will be solicited and then awarded to the community’s cause of choice.
