LUBBOCK, Texas -

UPDATE: The 34th annual Lubbock ISD Band Extravaganza is canceled due to inclement weather probability.

Here's the statement from Lubbock ISD: After consultation with the National Weather Service about the high probability for continued thunderstorms throughout today, the 34th annual Lubbock ISD Band Extravaganza has been canceled. Student safety is of the highest priority and PlainsCapital Park does not have the available space to shelter all students should it be necessary to move them due to storms and lightning. The event will not be rescheduled.


The rainy forecast has canceled our scheduled broadcast of the Lubbock ISD Band Extravaganza Tuesday.

As of Monday afternoon, the plan is for the high school bands to march Tuesday evening at Lowrey Field. The change is to other features usually seen each year. Middle schoolers and the LCU band won’t take part. Also, the Extravaganza won’t be on TV.

Here's the statement from Lubbock ISD:

After consultation with the National Weather Service about the high probability for thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and evening, Lubbock ISD middle schools will not be participating in the 34th annual Band Extravaganza tomorrow.

Student safety is of the highest priority and PlainsCapital Park does not have the available space to shelter all students should it be necessary to move them due to storms and lightning.

High school performances will continue as planned. If any changes are made to the high school band schedules, updated information will be sent out tomorrow.

The 34th annual Band Extravaganza will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26 at PlainsCapital Park – Lowery Field, 66th St. and Ave. P. The annual event will feature the UIL performances from all four of Lubbock ISD’s high schools. Tickets are $5 in advance and may be purchased from any Lubbock ISD band student. Tickets will also be available at the gate for $6.
