It’s time to purchase tickets to ‘buck in’ the New Year at the 4th Annual Professional bullriding Bullarama and Dance, at the North Thompson Agriplex.
Last Monday event representatives in Barriere announced they are excited to be able to offer a return shuttle from Clearwater to the event at the North Thompson Agriplex this year.
“We know a lot of people would rather not drive on winter roads or at night,” says facility manager Jill Hayward, “And of course those who would like to have a drink or two in the beer garden must also be cautious of driving. Therefore, we have made arrangements through Yellowhead Community Services to have one of their 20 person shuttles pick up Bullarama ticket holders at the Brookfield Mall in Clearwater at 5 p.m. Dec. 31, and return once the bull riding is completed, which will be at approximately 10 – 10:30 p.m.”
Hayward says seats on the shuttle must be pre-purchased and will cost $12 each and include the return trip as well as delivery and pick up at the door to the Agriplex. The shuttle will also stop at Jim’s Market in Little Fort if pre-purchased shuttle tickets require the shuttle to make a stop in that community as well.
“This event has been a sell-out the past three years, and is professionally sanctioned through Bull Riders Canada and we will have some of the best bullriders in Canada, the US and Mexico participating again,” said Hayward, “It’s a unique, fun and exciting family event – a great way to celebrate the arrival of a New Year.”
Admission tickets to the Bullarama only (kids 10 and under free) are $30, Bullarama and Dance (19+) $50 (*Note: Shuttle returns before the dance starts).
Tickets can be purchased at The Clearwater Times office (Clearwater), Barriere Country Feeds, the Star/Journal (Barriere), The Horse Barn (Kamloops), and online at www.eventbrite.ca. Shuttle tickets are only available at The Clearwater Times office and are limited to the first 20 riders. Doors open at 6 p.m. Bullriding starts at 7 p.m. Food vendors, commercial vendors and beer garden onsite.
