Cinch down tight and hold on for one of the most exciting events to come to Northeast Oklahoma Oct. 8 and 9. The Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) Touring Pro Division will make its debut in Miami, at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds this October. The 2010 Miami, OK event will be one of the PBR’s elite tour stops for the season. For two nights the top bull riders in the world will take on their animal counterparts in head-to-head bull riding action on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9 starting 7:30 p.m. nightly.
This highly anticipated event was made possible through the work of the City of Miami, Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau , the Ottawa County Horse Club and Tuff Bull Productions. The four state region has a tremendous PBR fan base and bringing a top level Touring Pro event was the goal of all involved. This year’s inaugural event will be a guaranteed bull riding fan’s dream come true. But the event committee is working hard to attract those who may have never been exposed to a PBR level event. “PBR is the highest level of competition a pro bull riding athlete can hope to compete at, but these events are more than just bull riding, they are pure entertainment for people from all walks of life” stated Jeff Lee, Tuff Bull Productions president and event promoter.
A ticket will guarantee PBR fans new and old more than two hours of edge-of-your-seat thrills and spills, rock’n’ music, big screen displays and amazing pyrotechnics. Gates will open around 6 p.m. nightly and the event will get started at 7:30 pm.
