Shuttle available for New Year’s Eve Bullarama in Barriere

Seats on the shuttle from Clearwater will cost $12 each and include the return trip

It’s time to purchase tickets to ‘buck in’ the New Year at the fourth annual Professional bull-riding Bullarama and Dance on New Years Eve at the North Thompson Agriplex in Barriere.

Last Monday event representatives in Barriere announced they are excited to be able to offer a return shuttle from Clearwater to the event at the North Thompson Agriplex this year.

“We know a lot of people would rather not drive on winter roads or at night,” says facility manager Jill Hayward, “And of course those who would like to have a drink or two in the beer garden must also be cautious of driving. Therefore, we have made arrangements through Yellowhead Community Services to have one of their 20-person shuttles pick up Bullarama ticket holders at a predesignated spot in Clearwater at 5 p.m. Dec. 31, and return once the bull riding is completed, which will be at approximately 10 – 10:30 p.m.”

Hayward says seats on the shuttle will cost $12 each and include the return trip as well as delivery and pick up at the door to the Agriplex. Pickup and return in Clearwater will take place at Brookfield Mall and riders must have a pre-purchased shuttle ticket to board.

“This event has been a sell-out the past three years, and is professionally sanctioned through Bull Riders Canada and we will have some of the best bull-riders in Canada, the US and Mexico participating again,” said Hayward. “It’s a unique, fun and exciting family event – a great way to celebrate the arrival of a New Year.”

Admission tickets to the Bullarama only (kids 10 and under free) are $30, Bullarama and Dance (19+) $50 (Note: shuttle returns before the dance starts).

Tickets can be purchased at the Clearwater Times office (Clearwater), Barriere Country Feeds, The Horse Barn (Kamloops), and online at Shuttle tickets are only available at the Clearwater Times office and are limited to the first 20 riders.

Doors will open at 6 p.m and bull-riding will start at 7 p.m. Food vendors, commercial vendors and beer garden onsite.
