This October, you'll want to buckle up your spurs and head to Scottsdale. It's time for some Championship Bull Riding.
Presented by KMLE-FM (107.9) and the Scottsdale Charros, the two-hour outing will feature some of the best bull riders in the world. The CBR chose the Scottsdale Charros to host the event because of the philanthropic organization's commitment to embrace Southwestern tradition.
"This is a great day for the CBR organization," said Benny Cude, chairman of CBR. "We look forward to expanding our tour, partnering with the Scottsdale Charros, and producing this outstanding event to our fans."
The Scottsdale Showdown will start at 4 p.m. with the Chevy Tailgate Down Party. Fox Sports will televise the event nationally. After the competition, there will be a concert featuring country music artists.
General admission tickets to the 21-and-over event start at $55 and go on sale Wednesday, July 31. For more information, visit www.scottsdaleshowdown.com.
