Our next Main Street Market Days in downtown Lufkin will be on Aug. 12. We have had great success with our past events, and with a few tweaks here and there, we are looking forward to seeing just how big we can make this monthly event. In July, we filled a whole block of the downtown street with vendors, and our goal is to fill all three blocks downtown with vendors. This month, we have lowered the vendor booth prices to $30 per booth, or $40 if you require electricity.
This Saturday, join us in downtown Lufkin for Main Street Market Days. First Street will be blocked off to through traffic, and the streets will be transformed into a marketplace with vendors lining both sides of the streets. Market Days will feature everything from food to homemade goods to clothes, crafts and art, as well as our downtown merchants being open. This event is held on the second Saturday of each month. This will be a shopping extravaganza that you don’t want to miss.
As many of you know, the Toyota Bassmaster Texas Fest was held here in Lufkin at the George H. Henderson Jr. Exposition Center May 17-21. The event was a huge success, and we are so glad that they chose Lufkin and Lake Sam Rayburn to host the tournament. Every hotel in Lufkin was completely booked that week, which is what really excites us here at the Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
