Plus, storewide tent sale and clearance event held July 19-27 features 20 percent to 50 percent off selected outdoor gear and apparel.

The Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) and Bass Pro Shops are teaming up to host a PBR family event July 26 and 27 that will include free crafts, face painting, costume contests, bull roping and free gifts. At participating stores, visitors can meet professional bull riders and see a live bull, too.

“With PBR Days, Bass Pro Shops continues to go beyond the expected to support our sport,” said PBR Chairman and CEO Jim Haworth.  “The PBR Days event is one of the most interactive and engaging activities our sponsors produce. It serves our core fan base, a large sector of which is the outdoor enthusiast, and cultivates new fans by bringing the PBR experience to everyone in person at Bass Pro Shops.  We’re really looking forward to this year’s event, as it coincides with the National Day of the Cowboy.”

In addition to the PBR event, customers can take advantage of the Bass Pro Shops storewide tent sale and clearance event. From July 19-27, selected items from men’s and women’s apparel, footwear, archery equipment, fishing gear, marine accessories and more will be 20 percent to 50 percent off regular prices.

At select Bass Pro Shops stores, PBR fans will get to see live bulls from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 26. In addition, some stores will give fans a chance to meet a professional bull riding expert and learn more about bull riding on Saturday, July 26 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. More information about which store locations offer these opportunities is available at
