The biggest rodeo on the east coast will be held this weekend in Atlantic City where 220 cowboys and cowgirls will come together to compete in the 3rd Annual Atlantic City Boardwalk Rodeo. And what better way to prepare for the competition than by stopping by Eye Opener to show off some of their best skills? Two real cowboys joined us live to show us the ropes – literally.
Guy Collins and Joey Williams will both be competing on separate teams in the Atlantic City Boardwalk Rodeo this weekend. The event will include seven challenging show events regulated by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PCRA) including bareback riding, tie-down roping, saddle bronc riding, team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, and bull riding – all in the name of $85,000 in prize money which will be awarded to winners.
Spectators of all ages are invited to join the rodeo at the Boardwalk Hall this weekend! Tickets can be purchased at the Boardwalk Hall Box Office or through Ticketmaster with special discounts for children between the ages of 2 and 12, senior citizens over the age of 65, military members, scouts and groups of 10 or more.
