LEXINGTON—Lee County Texas Stars 4-H has teamed up with Diamond Cross Rodeo Company to bring an exciting CPRA rodeo to the Lexington Homecoming event lineup this year. The non-stop action will include bull riding, bareback and saddle bronc riding, steer dogging, calf roping, team roping, tiedown roping, women’s breakaway roping, barrel racing and mutton bustin.

This fun filled rodeo features two performances on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4. Both start at 7:30 p.m. and will run about two hours. Slack runs on Thursday, May 2 starting at 7:30 p.m. Benny Boyd Dodge and other local sponsors have also teamed up to support this event. Diamond Cross Rodeo Company is owned by Wesley McManus of Lexington.

Concessions will be available at the arena all three nights. Tickets are $10 per person with children 3 and under free. Come out, enjoy a true small town rodeo and support the youth of Lee County.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Lee County Texas Stars 4-H Horse Club. The funds will be used to continue improvements to their home arena, The Memorial American Legion Rodeo Arena in Lexington, and to support the group at the District and State 4-H Horse shows this summer.
