Bull Blowout this weekend at Murray

Murray State University’s Cherry Expo center will host the 2015 Bull Blowout October 23-24. This years Bull Blowout will feature the most courageous local and national riders who will take on some of the fiercest and most powerful bulls. 

Bull Blowout is fun for the whole family. Along with bull riding there will be barrel racing, mutton busting and a calf scramble. Mutton busting is the riding of sheep. The calf scramble will allow kids to chase calves with flags on their tales, winning prizes by capturing them. There will also be an appearance from funny man Greg “Stump” Reynolds.  

“I want the audience to experience the action of bull riding and barrel racing since these are probably the most popular events in rodeo,” said Penny Parsons of the Bill cherry Ag Expo Center. 

Attendance is expected to be close to 15,000 patrons with about 100 competitors each night. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with festivities beginning at 8:00 p.m. nightly.
