Bulls, Bands, and Barrels Feat. FRANK FOSTER
The 2017 Bulls, Bands and Barrels tour will make the 3rd stop of its 5 market tour on Saturday, August 12th at The Rapides Parish Coliseum. Following a successful kickoff event in February that sold out on its first stop in Lexington, KY, the Bulls, Bands and Barrels tour rolled successfully into spring and will finish its tour with a bang this summer as it heads through Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Featuring the rankest bulls in the southeast and the fastest equines, Bull, Bands and Barrels promises to be three of the most exciting hours in westerns sports and entertainment. Following the competition, Frank Foster will bring his “Rowdy Reputation” home to Alexandria to treat the fans who love him most to his special brand of musical independence at its highest level.
The format is as follows: 20-30 of the best bull riders will tackle the rankest bucking bulls in the southeast, striving to make the 8-second buzzer. If a rider stays on his bull for the required 8 seconds, he gets a score and a chance to compete in the championship round. If he gets bucked off, he is finished. The cowgirls will take the dirt following the bull riding to see which of them can get the fastest time as they race around barrels in a figure 8 pattern. In the last two BBB event in Lexington, KY and Shelbyville, TN, fans watched as local stars grabbed some of the top spots in the final standings. Fans eagerly await to see if Alexandria competitors will do the same. Tickets for Bulls, Bands and Barrels are on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and now and can be purchased at The Rapides Parish Coliseum Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.com. Following the BBB event in Alexandria the next tour stop is slated for August 19th in Hattiesburg, MS. BBB will round out its tour with a final stop in Montgomery, AL on August 26th.
