Lakeland Pro Rodeo Classic TicketsEach year in central Florida, the annual Lakeland Pro Rodeo is host to some of the most skilled rodeo athletes in the business that come from all over the country to compete. There are eight classic rodeo events to take in at the rodeo, ranging from bareback bronc riding to bull riding and steer wrestling events that men, women and children compete in. The Lakeland Pro Rodeo is a family-friendly event, and not only do the winners leave with a cash prize, they’re also qualifying to take part in the National Rodeo Finals in Las Vegas. The Lakeland Pro is an important stepping stone for these athletes as they build a career in rodeo competition. Bulls, steer and horses are bred for the purpose of winning challenges like tie-down wrestling and steer roping alongside their human counterparts. The Lakeland Pro Rodeo takes place over an entire weekend packed with special events and contests. Grab your Lakeland Pro Rodeo tickets at StubHub.
