Labor Day Bull Riding draws big crowds at the Minnesota State Fair
The Bulls and Barrels Championship doubled the excitement for attendees at the Minnesota State Fair with two performances on Labor Day. Marty Barnes, owner of Barnes PRCA Rodeo Company which produced the bull riding said, "We had great crowds, terrific match-ups, saw some high scores. Everyone is excited about next year."
The final day of the Minnesota State Fair attendance was 171,299 nearly 13,000 ahead of Labor Day the previous year. The overall 12-day Minnesota State Fair set a new attendance record of 1,997,320.
Thousands of fairgoers packed the coliseum stands to watch cowboys and cowgirls compete for cash and trophy buckles. The field of contestants was limited to 30 bull riders and 12 barrel racers in each go-round. " The Minnesota State Fair known as The Great Minnesota Get-Together has a global reach. That could be seen by the different states and continents our contestants represented this year," added Barnes.
