For the sixth year the LCM Honeybears will be holding the popular Bulls and Barrels bull riding and barrel racing event.

This year’s show will be held Oct. 22 at the orange county Sheriff’s Posse Arena. The show is open to anyone that wants to ride a bull or run around the barrel pattern.

In addition to the two major events there will be mutton busting (sheep riding) and a calf scramble for the younger cowboys and cowgirls.

The fun event of the evening will be the calf dressing. Calf dressing is the event in which a team tries to dress an unwilling calf in ladies undergarments. The Honeybears are issuing a challenge to other area drill teams to for a team and participate. No experience is necessary, only four people who want to have fun is necessary. School teams that wish to enter the calf dressing should contact Valrie Gilbeaux at

Rodeo contestants wishing to enter the calf dressing or other events should call SYJ Productions at 409-745-1471. This will be the sixth year for SYJ to produce the show. Rodeo books will open Oct. 17 at 6 p.m.

The gate will open at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $6.00 for adults, $4 for children 12 and under and those under two years of age are free.
