Bull Riding Championships

Saturday, Sept. 4 @ 7:30 p.m.

The fine art of bull riding-- aptly referred to as the “most dangerous eight seconds in sports,” the fine art of bull riding requires a rider to stay atop a whirlwind of chaos using only one hand to hold on. Make sure to get your seat early, though it’s doubtful you’ll spend much time in it with all the excitement packed into the bull riding championships. It’s gonna be wild! 

Western Truck & Tractor Pulls
