A packed house cheered from their stadium seats as dirt flew through the air while cowboys rode bucking bulls during CityFest BuckOut at Cross Brand Cowboy Church’s arena.

The free event brought out over 5,000 people Wednesday evening to watch competitors ride bulls and broncos, enjoy live music and hear the Gospel.

Speakers Phil Robertson, a reality television star from the show “Duck Dynasty,” and evangelist Andrew Palau shared messages of hope in Jesus Christ with the crowd, followed by a performance by country singer Curtis Grimes.

The CityFest BuckOut was one of many events leading up to CityFest, a free two-day festival featuring live music, action sports, family-fun activities and opportunities to hear the Gospel, set for Saturday and Sunday.
