Conroe Bull Mania - October 19th
September 26, 2019
If you've been reading The Central Hub for any length of time, by now you know that I am an avid runner, I'm a born-and-raised Texas girl, I grew up in Montgomery County and I have the gift of gab!! But what you may not know about me is that I was born in Pasadena… TEXAS (not Pasadena, CA) .. insert eyeroll; just kidding.
I’m talking about Pasa-”get down”-dena, people. You know...the home of oil refineries, the strawberry capital of the region (who knew, right?), Mickey Gilley’s… the place where Bud and Sissy met and fell in and out and in love! If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you must stop reading this right now and rent the romantic “it’s complicated” comedy, Urban Cowboy featuring John Travolta and Debra Winger. This just makes me want to watch that movie again!! Back to the point I’m trying to make.. Mickey Gilley’s had a mechanical bull. What does that have to do with anything (other than Texas) you may be wondering? Well after you watch Urban Cowboy, listen to George Strait, Waylen Jennings, Merle Haggard or Chris Young (that one was for the millenials) you’ll be super fired up about bull riding and two-stepping. What you may not know, is that you can go to an event that is taking place in October where there will be live bull riding and rodeo clowns. Lee and I went last year and had the best time!! I don’t know about you --- but 8 seconds seems like an awfully long time to ride on a bull that is determined to buck whatever is on his back off! This is a sport that I love to watch but have zero desire to try. Can anyone relate? I love watching the bull riders who give us a good show who make it off the bull safely!!
Here’s what you need to know about Conroe’s Bull Mania:
As a past spectator, this is one local event that you don’t want to miss! See you at Bull Mania, friends.
