IF YOU’RE look­ing for a night of fun for the whole fam­ily, look no fur­ther than the Bullarama.

In con­junc­tion with the Proser­pine Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion and the Ju­bilee Tav­ern, an en­tire night of bull rid­ing ac­tion is set to hit the Whit­sun­days.

Ju­bilee Tav­ern man­ager Craig Bradley said the idea for the event had been around for a while and it would also serve as a low-key fundraiser.

“This is an event you can bring your fam­ily along to and have a good night,” he said.

“Re­ally, it’s just a great night of en­ter­tain­ment. It caters for ev­ery­one and it doesn’t go too late.”

It will be the first time the event will be hosted by Ju­bilee Tav­ern, with it set to take place in their car park.

There will be of course the tarvern’s bar and bistro open on the night as well an an af­ter party, with Fraud Squad set to keep the night go­ing with a gig in the tav­ern af­ter the show.

There will be five bull rid­ing cat­e­gories on the night in­clud­ing the open bull, rookie, ju­nior, steer and poddy rides.

Proser­pine Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion’s Je­mal Fer­raris said peo­ple should ex­pect an ac­tion packed night.

“It’s al­ways pretty high qual­ity,” he said.

“Of course, some­times the bull wins, some­times the rider does.”

There will be a spe­cial ad­di­tion on the night with two com­pletely new rid­ers set to en­ter the ring.

“We’re go­ing to chuck two young fel­las in there that have never rid­den a bull be­fore,” Mr Far­raris said.

“They are a cou­ple of lo­cal boys but I can’t say who. It’s go­ing to a sur­prise and they’re do­ing it to raise money.”

The main event is the open bull ride and Mr Fer­raris said it was al­ways a crowd pleaser.

“It de­pend on nom­i­na­tions of course but I ex­pect some pretty stiff com­pe­ti­tion,” he said.

Tick­ets must be bought on the day at the gate.
