Regarding the July 4th, 2020 Diamond W
National Bullriding Championship Independence Day…
The Weaverville Lions Club, after meeting with internal and external stakeholders, determined the safest conclusion which demonstrated the sense of care and accountability for the community is to cancel the “Fourth of July 2020 celebration and other included events.” The extensive pre-planning for the event – securing vendors, sponsors, advertising, etc. – forced the Lions to “make deliberate decisions that they never imagined considering.”
Diamond Productions, who hosts the barrel racing and the bull riding events for the weekend was united in this decision to cancel the celebration. The Lions and Diamond Productions have agreed, together, to host a “bigger and better” event in 2021.
