Pro Bull Riders Coming To Estes Park
The Professional Bull Riders are bucking into Estes Park on July 4th and July 5th for a weekend filled with rank bulls, high scores and big wrecks. The PBR Pro Touring Event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Stanley Fairgrounds. The PBR Pro Touring Event will showcase some of the most promising rising stars of the PBR, riding alongside fan favorites and veterans, as all the competitors’ face-off against the most famous animal athletes in the business. The Touring Pro Division offers upcoming bull riders the opportunity to compete in PBR sanctioned events, while earning money to qualify for the PBR’s elite Built Ford Tough Series and the PBR World Finals.
The Stanley Park Fairgrounds, home of the award-winning Rooftop Rodeo is the scenic, high-altitude setting for an event that promises to be action-packed and exciting….8 seconds at a time. The arena offers a ring-side view of the action, with an “arena-within-the-arena” constructed directly in front of the grand stands. When the bucking chutes open you can almost feel the ride! For those who desire an eye-ball to eye-ball experience, “VIP in the Dirt” seating on the arena’s west side brings you so close to the action you might want a seat belt! Get tough…the cowboy way…and purchase one of these limited VIP tickets. A beverage tent on the arena floor will accommodate all guests. VIP box seats and General admission tickets are also available.
Here’s the schedule:
Friday, July 4th:
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The evening gets underway at 6:30, be settled into your seats because the cowboys have drawn their bulls and are ready to ride! Each athlete competes for a score that will earn them a trip into the Saturday night finals.
At the conclusion of the Friday night PBR event the arena goes dark – sometime around 9:15 to 9:30. Then look to the sky for the annual July 4th “Fireworks over Lake Estes,” a spectacular show that draws thousands to the Estes Valley. Bring a blanket (no folding chairs please), relax and enjoy front-row seats to this grand, holiday celebration as the colorful fireworks burst overhead.
Saturday, July 5th:
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. as live music from the Dennis Tobias Band. Bull riding gets underway at 6:30 p.m. with more rounds of the Professional Bull Riding – Pro Touring Division series. Winning cowboys from each evening will then compete in the exciting event finale, going head to head in the finals, hoping to capture the winning honors, points and big money. Also on Saturday evening is the Bounty Bull event featuring the 2013 PBR Classic World Champion Bucking Bull “The Rocker.” You will see it all happen!
