Hold on tight for wild ride at Emerald's PBR

WITH a big screen TV, seating for more than 2000 people and a full night of non-stop action, locals have never seen anything like the Rural Weekly and CQ News PBR Live Series event.

Kicking off at 5pm and not stopping until 11.30pm, ARM events manager Dianne Hallam said the night was expected to be choc-a-block full of action in the arena.

"There is something happening from 5pm right through till 11.30pm that night, whether it is pre-entertainment with Dan England to create some atmosphere or the free jumping castle for the kids," she said.

"The whole area is licensed, so mum and dad can sit down with family and enjoy the bull riding with a quiet drink if they'd like to.

"This is the first time in Emerald they have had a big screen, and there has never been seating for such a large number of people."

While there is plenty of entertainment out of the arena, including 2005 Australian Idol finalist Dan England performing, Dianne said nothing could beat the dust-flying, bucking action inside.

"The bull ride brings together the best riders there is to Emerald - some for the first time," she said.

"And the best thing is the huge 40-foot screen replaying all the action. It is going to be a great night.

"Wherever you are, you will have a great seat. Come along and catch up with friends before Christmas.

"We are looking forward to a great night and I am sure it will be the first of many PBRs to come in Emerald."

Dianne encouraged locals to secure their tickets, with sales coming from throughout Queensland for the event.

The Rural Weekly and CQ News PBR Live Series will be held at the Emerald Showgrounds on Saturday, December 13.
