READING, Pa. -

Workers spent the day transforming the Sovereign Center into the wild West.

Bull-riders from across the country will participate in the Professional Roughstock Series on Saturday.

They'll compete in three different styles of riding on both bulls and broncos.

Organizers said it's a really exciting event for the riders and for the audience.

"It's like a UFC fight, mixed with NASCAR, mixed with a football game, hockey, like you put it all in one and you've got something there," said Kelly Timberman, commentator.

The competition begins at 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets range in price from $10 to $45.
