Security increasing for this weekend's PRCA rodeo in Longview

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Organizers of the Longview PRCA Rodeo say their adding more security officers this year. 

The 23rd annual rodeo is Friday and Saturday with a 6 p.m. Tailgate party -- and the main rodeo at 8 both nights.

Organizers say they've never had safety problems with the rodeo -- but after Monday's explosions in Boston, they don't want to take chances in security.

Coolers will not be allowed, and officers will work security both in the arena and in the parking lot.
