Bull riding is coming to Cross Insurance Center in Bangor for a 3-day event. Lots of cities on the tour only get two days of bull riding, but Bangor deserves three days, March 8, 9and 10.

Last year PBR set attendance records and had the most successful season ever. Expect that to continue as the tour once again comes to Maine.

And if you attend and enjoy the rodeo, maybe you can follow the tour.  The weekend after the Professional Bull Riders are in Maine, they will be in Palm Springs, California.  That is a lot of miles away, but Palm Springs has great weather in March.

Rodeos are great for us observers, but it is also a serious competition in addition to being a great family spectator sport.  The Velocity tour finals will be held May 3rd and 4th, 2024 in Corpus Christi, Texas. That information is for those who are going to follow the tour. Might as well go and see the finals.
