The PBR World Finals is busting through the gates. The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) World Finals is celebrating its 30th anniversary and its second year in Cowtown. The annual competition called Las Vegas home since 1992, but officially moved to Dickies Arena in 2022.

The first three rounds kicked off over the weekend + the final four rounds will be held Thursday, May 18-Sunday, May 21.

While Kaique Pacheco may be at the top of the leaderboard, the Fort Worth Zoo’s gorillas tapped Montague native Daniel Keeping to win and take home the coveted golden belt buckle.

This ain’t our first rodeo. We’ve rounded up some events so you can take this week by the horns.
