COLUMBUS – Ag Park is host to a special event this weekend as the Ultimate Bullriding Tour has made its way to Columbus for a 2 day event.
Starting on friday, bull fighters and bull riders from around the country will convene at Ag Park to showcase their abilities in a dangerous environment.
Jeff Schlender, one of the event organizers, is just happy to bring something unique like this to Columbus.
“Bringing something new to a community. Something different. Columbus doesn’t have a whole lot of Western events, we enjoy coming to Columbus, it’s well supported. The community supports it, we get good sponsorship, it’s something new for them,” said Schlender.
“Bullfighting, it’s an art. These guys go out there and protect these cowboys. When they get bucked off, they step in, they take the heat of the bull. It’s really neat to see someone take care of someone else like that,” said Schlender.
The event will take place Friday and Saturday night at Ag Park, and tickets can be purchased at the door.
