LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Wednesday night hundreds made their way into the Angelina Expo Center for a memorable night at the rodeo.

 "This is one of the top five rodeos in the nation so there's a lot to go into it we pretty much work all year on it," said Glen Arnold, President Lufkin Hosts Lions Club.

This is the 67th year for the Angelina County Benefit Rodeo to continue in Lufkin and for the past 54 years the Lufkin Host Lions club has planned and organized the event.

For the next four days yellow vests and hats will be seen around the arena, greeting people at the door and working the stands making sure rodeo goers have a great experience.

 "If we have a very successful rodeo then we are able to contribute a lot of money back to the community," said Steve Hall, Lion's Club Member.

From making cotton candy to flipping burgers, lion's club members work to make sure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes.

 "We have about 200 members that are out here working the next four nights to brings this to you," said Arnold.

Volunteers began set up last Sunday and will work until clean-up this coming Sunday, their goal is to ensure the give as much money as possible to local charities.

 "We are all here for free that means more money for our charity," said Jody Anderson, Lion's Club Member.

The Angelina County Benefit Rodeo continues Thursday with the first ever Calf Scramble.
