Watch our highlight reel from last year's Professional Bull Ride to see why Saturday's will be the top event in the country.

Union, Mo. -  If you want a evening jammed packed with entertainment then the Franklin County Fair in Union, Mo is where it’s at with Country Music Star Craig Morgan performing and the biggest Professional Bull Riding event in the country is all happening at the Franklin County Fair this Saturday.

The action begins at 7 p.m. as the biggest professional bull riding event in the country will kick off as Rafter Rodeo Productions returns to host the 2nd Annual Kathy Prilwetz Memorial Professional Bull Ride. (Click here to read the emotional story behind the "Kathy Prilwetz Memorial" PBR.)

Producer of Saturday’s Bull Ride Ben Prilwetz told QuickNewsNow, “We have some of the best bullriders in the business from across the country lined up to ride some of the meanest bulls known in the industry.”

It all begins with 32 riders, with the top 8 returning to battle for over $5,000 in prize money.

Prilwetz gave us a list of a few top bull riders, which include:  reigning 2013 National Federation of Professional Bullriders Champion Travis Smith, reigning 2013 Bullriders of America Champion Skyler Sim, and last year’s Franklin County Champion Austin Martin returns to defend his title.

Other notables include Mason Lowe from the PBR Built Ford Tough Series and Matt Pojanowski who has been on the Built Ford Tough Series and now is on the Championship Bull Riding series.

To top it all off, following the bull ride, Country Music Star Craig Morgan will take the stage in what is expected to be a rocking concert.
