Work Crews Setting Up for Buc Days Rodeo Events

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Work crews were busy at the American Bank Center Tuesday setting up the arena to host the upcoming Buc Days rodeo events.

It's the 24th year that the PRCA Rodeo has been put on during Buc Days. On Monday, crews brought in the dirt, and Tuesday was "iron day" as volunteers set up the side panels and chutes.

Once all of that is set up, crews say they can bring in the animals, and then the cowboys.

"The rodeo starts on Thursday night and the first performance is at 7:30 p.m. It's Military Appreciation Night at the rodeo, and then we will have performances on Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., and 2 p.m. Sunday."

The PRCA-sanctioned rodeo will feature seven official events, including bull riding, team roping and steer wrestling.
