Longview will stage a forklift rodeo
Longview, Texas officials are planning a forklift rodeo as part of their Industry Appreciation Month.

Longview Economic Development Corp., the Longview Convention and Visitors Bureau, area educators and industries will stage a forklift rodeo on February 12 at Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center in Longview.

"Longview’s history and present are full of makers, builders, doers and inventors. Ever since Longview was founded as a railroad town in 1870, industrious people have been making cool stuff in our corner of East Texas," according to LEDCO. "That industrious culture grew with the East Texas Oil Boom of the 1930s and the manufacturing necessity of World War II. Today, Longview companies continue that tradition, using modern technology to create, build and distribute goods."

The public is invited to watch forklift drivers from local companies show off their skills in competition for prizes and a travelling trophy.
