The best part was the big "chalk board" entitled "Before I die..." it was covered with hopes and dreams of visitors to the Walk of Fame...not a single piece of unpleasant graffiti.

The Buddy Holly statue was worth the stop !! The area is well kept, there is plenty of parking and great photo op's. A chalk board area allowed visitors to make comments about, "what I want to do before I die". Surprisingly there were no vulgar comments. I was impressed Lubbock !!

Another "must see" if you visit Lubbock. Many people in that hall of fame, and the picture with Buddy Holly is a must!

The statue and Walk of Fame is just across the street from the Buddy Holly Center. It's a small display naming local celebrities and more famous people from the area. Probably not worth a special trip unless one knows these celebrities, but easy and okay as a n add-on to seeing the Buddy Holly Center.

Two of us visited this after visiting the Buddy Holly Center next door. If you visit the BH Center you should walk across the street to see this. It was a beautiful day and a good one to get your picture taken next to the Buddy Holly Statue.

Ideally located next to the Buddy Holly centre - a tribute to all. It features stars for a large number of great musicians

Every Buddy Holly fan and West Texas music history buff should go see this. There is an unbelievable constellation of early Rock-n-Roll and Country Western stars from or connected to Lubbock.

Nice little park in a bad warehouse area of town trying to come up in the world. Lucky for us there was a Farmers Market that day and it saved the morning to a dull day in Lubbock
