Chicken fried steak -- it's whats on the menu in Lamesa Friday, April 27th through Sunday, April 29th.

The event takes place at Forrest Park, located at 814 S. Houston in Lamesa.

In April 2011, the Texas Legislature declared Lamesa, Texas the "Legendary Home of the Chicken Fried Steak".  The City of Lamesa celebrates this declaration each year on the last weekend of April by having a fun-filled weekend and cook-off competition.

Now, with that said, on Friday night, April 27th, the event kicks off with a chicken fried steak dinner with all the fixings, along with music by David Lee Garza Y Los Musicales.

Saturday night, the festivities continue with live bands, a classic car show, team roping competition and more. Also on Saturday night, the hot air balloons will be performing a fire concert with guest Jordan Robert Kirk at the County Barn.

Both Saturday and Sunday morning hot air balloons will be taking off for a trip across the skies of the South Plains.

So why not make that short drive to Lamesa and celebrate where it all started? For more information, visit the City of Lamesa's Website.
