This is not a rodeo; it’s the Toughest Sport on Earth! All for one price you will witness firsthand the best bull riders in the world as they take on the rankest bulls on the planet followed immediately by the “In The Dirt After Party” with the hottest band in the North, the Deere John Band. Don’t miss all of the action as the biggest bull-riding event ever to hit the Peace Country rocks Dawson Creek for one night only. “Not only is the PBR a tremendously exciting sporting event and entertainment spectacular,” commented Cody Snyder, “but holding it in the Peace Country in October is a great way to celebrate the end of fall harvest and to kick off the start of what looks to be a banner year in the oil patch”. Tyler Thomson (Black Diamond, AB), current PBR Canada season leader; reigning Canadian PBR Champion Beau Hill (West Glacier, Mont.); Canada’s current #1 ranked bull rider Aaron Roy (Asquith, SK); PBR World Finals Champion Luke Snyder (Raymore, Missouri); plus many other top professional bull riders are among the 35 riders participating.
