It’s not every day a $9 million rodeo arena opens in your backyard, but that’s happening Thursday. The Arcadia All Florida Championship Rodeo hosts its signature “Granddaddy of ’Em All” four-day event March 8-11 in the new Mosaic Arena, next to the Turner Agri-Civic Center in Arcadia — about an hour’s drive from Fort Myers. The venue will have 7,796 seats — nearly one for every Arcadia resident — in 107,000 square feet, with a covered arena.
