Get your bull riding fix watching some of the top riders from across the country.

The fourth annual Bullarama presented by Ponoka’s Agricultural Society will be filled with family entertainment April 30.

“It’s a good time to be had by all,” said president Sherry Gummow. “This is one of the most exciting spectator sports there is.”

There are 36 bulls this year, 30 in the long go and six in the short go.

New to the event this year is a special feature — those who purchase tickets in advance have a chance to win a travel voucher or a Ponoka Stampede ticket package.

Taking place at the arena complex, doors open at 6:30 p.m. and Bullarama begins at 7:30 p.m. A cabaret will follow.

Gummow advises those purchasing tickets at the door to get there early.

All proceeds from the event go toward projects supported by the Ag Society such as the 4-H clubs and the Ponoka Youth Centre. Tickets can be purchased at Busted Ladies Lingerie, Vold, Jones & Vold Auction or the Jones Boys Saddlery and Western Wear.
