About Bulls, Bands and Barrels (BBB)
Bulls, Bands and Barrels is a premier western competition and entertainment tour featuring bull riding, barrel racing and up and coming national artists. Bull riding is considered a standard rodeo event for a variety of organizations. The event developed strictly as a contest, as opposed to other standard rodeo events which evolved out of the necessary skills of a working cowboy. Bull riding, often referenced as the most popular of event offerings at rodeos, makes up part of the industry’s rough stock events. Barrel racing, another of the top two competitions in rodeo, is one
of the most unique events in the rodeo world. While cowboys are riding spinning bulls, cowgirls are charging through the gate in a race against the clock. Barrel racing is truly one of the fastest events in rodeo. The Bulls, Bands and Barrels Tour features top level talent in each western
emphasis while also providing top entertainment talent as a unique bonus for fans to enjoy.
