ABC Pro Rodeo Hits Lubbock

Dates for the 66th ABC Pro Rodeo have been set for April 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2008 at the Municipal Coliseum. Shows start at 7:30pm each night and a 1:30pm matinee on Saturday the 5th. Mark your calendars now!

Once again the Beutler & Son Rodeo Company will be bringing the TOP RODEO Livestock in the PRCA to the Municipal Coliseum! Every year, since 1949 this rodeo company has amazed us with their professionalism and the quality of stock they bring to Lubbock.

PRCA announcer of the year BOYD POLHEMUS promises to keep us laughing and on the edge of our seats as the world's top cowboy and cowgirl athletes compete for thousands of dollars in prize money and a chance to go to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada in December.

Come and see Johnny "Backfilp" Dudley - PRCA / Extreme Bulls / PBR Barrelman. One of the funniest clowns in rodeo!

We are proud to announce the return of Championship Bull Fighting to the rodeo again this year.  This is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Watch three of the bravest men you will ever meet go head to head with true Mexican fighting bulls. The Bull Fight will be held each and every performance. Professional free style Bull Fighting sponsored by Suddenlink Communications.

As seen on RFD-TV, 40 of the world's top Bull Riders will come to Lubbock to compete for $20,000 in prize money at the ABC Rodeo Championship Bull Riding on Sunday.

Friday night, April 4th will be a special night! Immediately after the Rodeo, country recording artist Jason Meadows will be performing in the Coliseum! Best of all, your Friday night ticket includes the rodeo and the concert!
