Let's kick it.

Lubbock has been getting pretty hot, so we had to ice it down with help from Texas native Robert Van Winkle, AKA Vanilla Ice.

Every year the 4th on Broadway celebration always kills it with awesome things to do. It just got better with a live performance by this awesome rapper known for his hit song "Ice Ice Baby."

Ninja Johnny also told Renee Raven in an interview that he might be there to perform with Vanilla Ice during the concert like he has done before.

This show will be free to the public and happen at Mackenzie Park during the annual event 4th on Broadway celebration on Tuesday, July 4th, 2023.
