CROCKETT – Slap on your spurs, put on your pearl-snap shirt and get ready for three days of bull riding and bronco busting because the 59th Annual Crockett Lion’s Club Rodeo is right around the corner. The event starts on Thursday, May 6 and continues through Saturday, May 8 at the Porth Ag Arena in Crockett.
For over 50 years, the rodeo has attracted some of the best cowboys and cowgirls the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association has to offer as they compete against the world’s best bucking stock.
According to the Crockett Lions Club, “Longtime friend of the Crockett Lions Club, Sammy Andrews, will bring his award-winning stock and longtime announcer, Mike Mathis, will be back on the dirt of the Porth Ag Arena to see all of their friends in Crockett.”
Cody Sosebee will serve as rodeo clown.
