This year's rodeo is on March 31, April 1 and 2nd at the City Bank Coliseum.

We can't wait for the ABC Rodeo this year, we've gotten to spend a lot of time with the folks at different events to promote the rodeo and this year will be another big year for Lubbock's longest running event.

Lonestar 99.5 will be broadcasting live from the rodeo that includes all your favorite events like saddle bronc, bareback, steer wrestling, calf roping, team roping, barrel racing, bull riding, mutton bustin' and freestyle bullfighting.  Yes, that's right, The Office Grill and Sports Bar is sponsoring freestyle bull fighting that goes on after the rodeo with an extra session this year.

Slim Garner is this year's rodeo clown and barrelman and Greg Simas and Shane Burrell are the announcers. There's performances too from bull fighter's Dusty Tuckness and Gres Simas.
