Sundome Being Filled With Dirt

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash - Staff at the Sundome are getting ready for Professional Bull Riding this weekend.  About nine football fields worth of dirt is being brought into the Yakima Sundome for the event this Saturday.

This year the floor in the Sundome has been transformed from a basketball court, to a football field and now a bull riding arena. 

"Transitioning from event to event anymore in any venue has become just another day," says Rob Juker, the Arena Director for the Sundome.

Competitors in the event are from all over the county  The action starts Saturday night at 7:00.  Last year all but 100 tickets were sold.  Staff expect a sell out this year.
