As I’ve told you many times before I love sharing all the happenings near Fort Bragg for families that are looking for things to do. A few months ago I told you Aerosmith was coming to town and gave away several tickets. This time thanks to the good folks at PNC Arena I am happy to share with you about the “World’s Toughest Rodeo 2014” coming to Raleigh on Friday January 17, 2014.


This is your chance to see real life cowboys test the limits of extreme sports as they ride and try to stay on horses and bulls.

Top cowboys from around the United States test their grit in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding. While 8-seconds doesn’t seem long, it can feel like an eternity for some of these guys atop a bucking horse or a 2,000-pound bull.

You’ll also get to see “Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey” who happens to be back by popular demand. Yes, you read that right a Cowboy Monkey!


World’s Toughest Rodeo will feature the wild and western cowboy primate atop his Border Collie mount “Ben” as they round up wild Barbados sheep. Whiplash has entertained crowds at rodeos and special events all across North America and Europe.

6 Comments on North Carolina Happenings: World’s Toughest Rodeo 2014 + Ticket Giveaway for Fort Braggers

  1. Out of my husband Grant, and our 18 month old daughter, Raelynn and myself. I believe I would enjoy the rodeo the most, followed close second by our daughter. I grew up going to rodeos, and in already take my daughter horse back riding. And of course like any husband, Grant just enjoys whatever makes my heart sing. Please oh please, going to this rodeo would help me feel less home sick!

  2. My husbands birthday is this month, this would be a blast to go to and celebrate with him. I know he’d really enjoy it. Thank you for the opportunity.

  3. Out of our small family, I believe my husband would enjoy this the most. He is originally from Texas, and was at a rodeo every Saturday night. He would really have fun at this!

  4. Want sure if it mattered which comment section we posted to. So….

    My husband and I are originally from AZ, and it was always one of our favorites to go to the Rodeo in Feb during the break. Now we’re not only thousands of miles away from that, but my husband is deployed as well. I think I would honestly enjoy it the most, introducing our kids to something that brings good memories for both of us!

  5. Starting from January of the same year, try getting a
    small chunk of your monthly paycheck and make
    a deposit into the new account. Cop costumes
    for women are so popular in the costume world of women at every Halloween. Even you can do mix and match with your
    babies’ costumes.
