Bulls on the Beach This Weekend in Orange Beach

Cowboy boots and bikinis will come together in Orange Beach this weekend. Surprising? A little until you hear the whole story.

We have a local celebrity named Cody Harris, from Robertsdale, AL, who was a participant in the Country Music Television Sweet Home Alabama show and then later on the Southern Nights TV shows. Cody is producing a never-before-attempted professional bull riding event at Live Bait in Orange Beach beginning today through Saturday.

The venue will be an 1,800-seat arena set up for bull-riding on Saturday followed by an outdoor concert by country music artist Pat Green. The cost is $40 for adults and $20 for children 10 years or younger. More info is available on the Live Bait Restaurant website.

So now you know where the cowboy boots fit in - the bull riders and audience - but what about the bikinis? Well tonight at Live Bait Too nightclub there will be an adults-only, over 21 "Babes on the Bull" mechanical bull-riding contest for bikini-clad participants.

During the three days of activities there will also be a "meet and greet" opportunity with some of the other cast members of Sweet Home Alabama and Southern Nights, plus children's activities and fireworks.

My tip to you is take the shuttles that will run from the Gulf State Park Pavilion because on-site parking will be very limited.

Hurry to the beach, you don't want to miss the fun.
