The Angola rodeo is back, after being canceled once this year already. The prison's famous rodeo returns this October and will be every Sunday during the month. The rodeo, despite what one might think, indeed is a family-friendly event. It features a unique rodeo experience with the cowboys being prisoners of the Angola Prison.
