Special to The Hays Daily News
PHILLIPSBURG -- Tickets are on sale for the June 1 Phillipsburg PBR.
Pro Bull Riding is the nation's premier bull riding association, and the event in Phillipsburg is part of the PBR's Touring Pro Division, with approximately 40 bull riders scheduled to compete.
The Phillipsburg PBR is designed to be family friendly, organizer Rod Innes said. Fireworks will follow the show, and general admission tickets for children ages 12 and younger are free when they are accompanied by an adult.
"We're working to keep things affordable for families," he said.
Along with good cowboys, good bucking bulls will be on hand for the event. Jimmy Crowther, New Frontier Rodeo, will bring bulls who have bucked on the PBR's Built Ford Tough Series and have high buck-off rates.
"Our rodeo fans appreciate good rodeo, so we made sure to hire the best stock contractor with the best bulls," Innes said.
The Phillipsburg PBR is the culmination to the weekend's Riverless Festival, which includes a fun run, kids' pedal pull, Kansas Cushman Club Show, turtle races, car and bike show, inflatable games, free swim, senior men's open golf tournament, and live entertainment and vendors on the square. Riverless Festival activities are throughout the day June 1, with the PBR beginning at 8 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at Heritage Insurance Co. in Phillipsburg, by calling (785) 543-2448 with a credit card. Ticket prices are $18 for general admission, $20 for adult reserved and $10 for children reserved seating. Box seats and chute seats still are available.
