Corpus Christi, Texas (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- The 71st annual Buc Days Festival will soon be underway along the Corpus Christi Bayfront. La Palmera has teamed up with the popular festival, which runs April 23-May 3, to provide a special gift with purchase for its best shoppers.
From April 1 through April 15, shoppers spending $500 on any single day may bring those same-day receipts to Concierge to receive a pair of premium seats to the Buc Days Miller Lite Pro PRCA Rodeo presented by the Coastal Bend Chevy Dealers. (Offer good while supplies last.) The tickets are also good for admission to the Buc Days carnival, BBQ Challenge and live entertainment stages.
âWe are pleased to team up with the Buc Days festival for this special promotion,â said La Palmera General Manager Fred Walters. âThe event is a staple in the Coastal Bend and we applaud and support the efforts of the Buccaneer Commission who work so hard to successfully raise scholarship dollars for our local students. We know our La Palmera customers will enjoy the rodeo and other Buc Days events.â
The rodeo will be held at the American Bank Center Arena Thursday, April 23, through Saturday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. with a final matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 26. Tickets from La Palmera are for either the Thursday or the Sunday performance. More than 400 cowboys and cowgirls from around the world are expected to compete in the rodeo, one of the top 50 in the U.S.
âWhere in the World is Jolly Roger?â is the Buc Days theme this year. This culturally diverse event attracts more than 250,000 people annually and includes events such as the Pro PRCA Rodeo, carnival, BBQ challenge and the Buc Days Illuminated Night Parade. Since 1996, proceeds from the event have benefitted the Buccaneer Commission Scholarship fund, which awards college scholarships annually to the area youth.
