The Chicago Bulls may be headed to Wisconsin for a showdown with the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center, but bulls of an altogether different sort will be stomping their stuff with rodeo cowboys February 3rd and 4th.
The Professional Championship Bull Riders World Tour Finals VI will offer rodeo action at the Sears Centre Arena on Friday, February 3rd, and Saturday, February 4th. Some of the nation’s top bull riders will hold on for dear life, riding wild bulls.
Other equestrian attractions will include Divas of the Dirt World Class Barrel Racing and Roman Riding by Jenny Vlahos of the Midwest Renegades Dare Devils and equestrian drill team of Northern Illinois.
Montgomery Gentry will present a country music concert after the bull riders competition on both nights.
Doors open at 6 p.m. CST on February 3rd and 4th for the Professional Championship Bull Riders World Tour Finals VI, with events starting at 7:30 p.m. CST. Free pony rides will be available before the competition, and the first 300 kids to arrive on Saturday, February 4th, will receive free cowboy hats.
Advance tickets are priced from $17 to $52 and are available online. Kids 12 and under may be admitted for $10. At-the-door prices include a $2 increase.
The Sears Centre Arena is located at 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway, in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, approximately 115 miles southeast of Madison.
