I don't know about you, but seeing all of the pandemic restrictions melt away like snow in the sun is doing my heart some good! All of the concert announcements, open restaurant dining rooms, and more are making this feel like the springiest spring that has ever sprung! Now, another incredibly positive sign that we are emerging from our 2-year-pandemic-cacoons is really making me feel like life-as-we-used-to-know-it could be back soon!
According to a report from WBRZ, the world-famous Angola Prison Rodeo is back! After a 2-year break due to COVID-19, the triumphant return of the black-and-white-striped cowboys is set for April 23-24 and will feature everything you love (and have missed) about rodeo.
Inmates are set to ride angry bulls, wrestle steer, and impress the crowd with all of your rodeo favorites. Outside the arena, there will be arts and crafts (made by the inmates) for sale as well. All of the proceeds from the rodeo and the arts market go to benefit programs put in place to help freed inmates reenter society.
Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event are on sale now, and go for $20. You can find out more about the rodeo and buy your tickets online by visiting the official Angola Prison Rodeo Website here.
