From the very beginning, nearly seven years ago, Blizzard Bash barely put 500 people in the stands. Today, Sam Williams and Kansas Expocentre/SMG built this baby to its current status as the most heavily attended demolition derby in the country. There are only six more days until the first green flag is dropped at Blizzard Bash 2016. The action this year will span four days, Thursday through Sunday, in 12 vehicle classes, with over 250 drivers from all over the country. Tickets start at $18, $27 for Pit Passes, with weekend tickets also available. Blizzard Bash features extensive live video from multiple cameras and instant replay, as well as behind-the-scenes clips and interviews. If you can’t make it, it is available on Pay Per View starting at only $15 at derbynation.tv. If you can handle the crazy, this is where you need to be.
When the only thing you can expect is the unexpected. First night of the United Rodeo Association Finals is tonight at 7pm! Fifteen Men and Women competing in nine different events, from bull riding, to barrels, to steer wrestling. You can get tickets at the door for $12, or $7 for kids. If you can’t make it out tonight, the rodeo starts at 7pm on Saturday, and noon on Sunday, with Cowboy Church at 9am.
