Gathering on the Square, finding a shady spot under a huge pecan tree and enjoying friendly fellowship is what one does during Homecoming! Proof of the same is seen above when, in 2008, Ruby Nickason, Carol Dyer, Inez Mantel and David Mann, relax in the shade while listening to the local bands playing in the Gazebo. Earl Hartfiel and Bob Belyew enjoy the beautiful weather while chatting with friends on the Square in 2008. Some entertaining and talented fellows strummed toe-tapping music in 2008. Mackenzie Lira, 9, of Giddings rode this motorcycle over and over during the 2008 Lexington Homecoming. Vendors line the streets surrounding the Gazebo in downtown Lexington, thrilling patrons with all kinds of baubles and trinkets. Above, Jordan reaches to some crystal windchimes under the close eye of his mother, Beth. This picture, too, was captured during the 2008 Lexington Homecoming.
