It's rodeo time! Well almost, as the Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo rides back into Cedar Rapids' U.S. Cellular Center both Friday and Saturday night. Thursday, truckload after truckload of dirt will be hauled onto the floor of the arena, transforming it to rodeo-ready.

The fun begins Friday night and it doesn't start with the first rodeo event at 7:30. No, it's much earlier, with the pre-show and pre-party, that start at 6 p.m. The kids will love the pony rides, they can hop into the clown barrel for pictures, sit on Midnight the Bull, even take a pony ride, or a tour of what goes on behind the chutes!

Brain and Courtlin will then take to the mic to do their best rodeo voice... no, they're just going to say hello to you on KHAK Night... we're not gonna let these two try to describe the action. When the rodeo begins, everything you love is included. Bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull jumper (take your breath away AMAZING) Manu Lataste, plus a whip artist and world championship trick roper.

There's a ton of stuff to see at the rodeo and we'll even help you save $5 off your ticket. Click HERE and grab your boots and jeans. It's time to rodeo.
