Lufkin's Downtown Hoedown gets rebranded

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A change is coming to a favorite Lufkin community event.

The annual Downtown Hoedown that is entering its 25th year will now be known as SpringFest. The event is still being put on by Lufkin Main Street.The event will take place on April 22.

"The event started off being connected with the rodeo, but we are no longer connected," said Main Street Director Barbara Thompson. "With this being our 25th year, we wanted to offer something fresh and new look. We are adding different things to downtown. This year we are going to have our zip line."

Thompson said there will also be shopping, arts and crafts, food vendors, and activities that include a fashion show and car show.
