Dust off those Boots, it's time for the Rodeo!!

It is spring time and we are in late April which means one thing: time to get those boots and cowboy hats ready to go, because the Angelina Benefit Rodeo kicks off on Wednesday evening.

The Angelina Benefit Rodeo will take place at the Angelina County Expo Center and will run from Wednesday, April 21st through Saturday, April 24th.

Just like years past, this year will feature several great stunts and entertainers.

Opening night is Wednesday, and just like opening day when baseball or football season gets underway, it is the most anticipated moment of the entire event.

To double your pleasure, Wednesday night is not only opening night, but it is "KTRE Night" as well.

Me, along with some of my colleagues, will be out at the rodeo, partaking in some of the festivities and events.

We will be going live from the rodeo at 5 and 6 o'clock on the East Texas News.

Right now, the forecast for opening night looks great. We will see partly cloudy skies with warm conditions. Temperatures in the early evening will be in the middle 70's and then fall into the upper 60's to lower 70's by the late evening hours.
