Angola Prison Rodeo

Packing up and getting ready for tomorrow. Headed to St. Francisville, La. for lunch and visit The Myrtles Plantation. From there down to Port Allen for the night. Getting up Saturday morning and headed to the prison for the rodeo. Our first time and it should be a hoot!. May can take a few camera phone pics since cameras aren't allowed.

Whatever you do, if they ask you to have a seat in a metal chair, DON'T!!!

Been their many times leave early to avoid bumper to bumper traffic . Leave all pocket knives at home . Still trying to talk the wife into spending a night at the plantation .Lots to see and take in. The early rodeo isn't as crowed as the one in October . Lots of crafts and food hope you enjoy it.

I heard about the traffic. We hope to be there when the gates open.

I've been there 3-4 times. Interesting rodeo. Lots of great "prisoner made" stuff there too. Expect to do a lot of waiting around too.

I have the waiting around part down. Standing in lines and waiting is a few of the things the Navy taught me...LOL

The rodeo was awesome. The arts and crafts the prisoners do were beautiful. Like one inmate told me who did some beautiful wood burnings, "If you don't learn anything else while you are here you will learn patience.

Food..OMG! Everything from Crawfish to Gumbo, Frog Legs, fried chicken, wraps, cajun dishes, burgers, BBQ, and more!

The rodeo was a hoot! A couple prisoners had to be taken off on a backboard but that's part of the danger of it. The thing is they gave 100% to entertain and do the best they could during their event.

I'd highly recommend it to anyone. If you want a good deal on some beautiful wood products, bring a trailer and load up.
