I believe we all knew that this announcement was coming sooner or later, but it doesn't make it any less difficult to digest.  One of the great traditions of Deep East Texas, the Angelina Benefit Rodeo, was been canceled for this year.

Here is the official announcement from the Facebook Page of the Angelina Benefit Rodeo:

The Angelina Benefit Rodeo and The Lufkin Host Lions Club are deeply saddened to announce the cancellation of the 2020 rodeo. However, the safety and well-being of our guests and our community is our top priority.

We look forward to the 2021 Angelina Benefit Rodeo in April 21st-24th. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.

We sincerely thank all our sponsors and supporters that each year make the Angelina Benefit Rodeo a great success.

This decision has been very difficult to make by all the members of the board and club, but due to the corona virus we had no other option.

See you next year for the GREATEST SHOW ON DIRT
