The annual Bulls and Bands Central Texas State Fair returns to Belton, TX Labor Day Weekend, August 29-31. Featuring the Reed Exposition Midway, PBR Touring Pro, Mark Riggs and the Circus Ridiculous, comedy hypnotist Erick Kand, Lonestar Action Sports, Wade Bowen, Kevin Fowler, the Casey Donahew Band, Grupo Siggno... Why haven't you bought your tickets yet?

Friday through Sunday, visit the Carnival and Fairgrounds from 5pm to Midnight. Mark Riggs will ride a 10-foot tall unicycle, walk a tight rope, and jump into a pool of water from 20 feet in the air in the Mark Riggs Thrill Show, and Lonestar Action Sports, who you might recognize from their appearances in the X Games or on America's Got Talent, will amaze you with some of the highest flying extreme sports Central Texas has ever seen. While you're there, don't miss the fun, laughs, and mysteries of Erick Kand, comedy hypnotist in two live shows every evening.

Saturday and Sunday, do not miss the PBR Touring Pro, starting at 7:00 p.m., showcasing the rising stars of the PBR alongside veterans and fan favorites. The Touring Pro division offers up-and-coming bull riders the chance to compete to qualify for the Built Ford Tough World Finals presented by Wrangler.

All three nights, stick around for the stars of Texas music. Friday night's show starts at 7:45 p.m., with Thieving Birds and Wade Bowen. Shows Saturday and Sunday pick up right after the PBR, with Curtis Grimes and Kevin Fowler on Saturday and William Clacrk Green and the Casey Donahew Bandon Sunday.

The Central Texas State Fair has all that and more--like the Reed Exposition Midway, presenting the best thrill rides and family-oriented games and attractions in Central Texas, and the Saturday-only Livestock Shows, featuring steers, heifers, lambs, and goats, starting at 9:00 a.m.
