BOARDWALK HALL GETTING DIRTY FOR RODEO



BOARDWALK HALL GETTING DIRTY FOR RODEO


ATLANTIC CITY -- Boardwalk Hall is getting 1,200 tons of dirt trucked in ahead of this weekend's big Boardwalk Rodeo.

Crews began work Wednesday, covering the arena floor with over half a foot in some areas. While organizers say over 10,000 people are expected to attend, they're promising an exciting weekend that rodeo fans of all ages are sure to remember.

"I think it's going to be great family fun. We've gone out of our way to make sure that the tickets are priced so that everybody can bring their families, and we just hope that everyone comes out because I know it's going to be great," says Janet Markowitz, one of the event's organizers.

Hundreds of steers, horses, and other large animals are also being trucked in for the weekend. The Atlantic City Boardwalk Rodeo kicks off this Friday April 1st and runs through Sunday April 3rd.
