Pro Bull Riding tour is bucking it's way back into Grafton

SLAP on your big hat and pull on your boots - the Professional Bull Riding circuit is on its way back to Grafton.

After being a sensation at the Grafton Showground in March this year, the series will return next May for another night of spectacular action.

Many of the top bullriders in Australasia will compete on the big night, including this year's Rural Weekly series champion Fraser Babbington from New Zealand and in-from Cody Heffernan from Singleton.

The night promises a step up in excitement from the action last March, and a step up in comfort for spectators with a special grandstand being brought in for the night.

The stand will seat 480 spectators - all in in numbered, individual seats -along one side of the bullriding ring.

There will also be two rows of individual numbered seats right around the ring to seat close to 300 more spectators.

The general admission will have plenty of room where spectators can bring their own blankets and chairs.

Two big screens will cover the event while spectators can enjoy plenty of entertainment throughout the night and after the bullriding is finished there will be live music playing until late.

Tickets for the 2016 event go on sale now - which means they would make an idea Christmas gift for the PBR fan in your family.

Tickets can be purchased at www.ruralweekly.com.au/ liveseries, where you will be able to choose and pay for your seats. Tickets can also be bought from APN newspaper offices in Coffs Harbour, Lismore, Casino, Grafton and Tweed Heads.

Premium ringside and grandstand tickets are $50 each for adults, $30 for children (3-16 years), and $130 for a family (two adults and two children).

General admission tickets are $35 (adults), $20 (children) and $90 (family).
