Since 1938, the Buccaneer Days Festival has celebrated the beginning of summer by revisiting Corpus Christi’s history through carnivals, parades, and pirate-themed events. In the midst of citywide barbecues, music performances, and an annual dunking of the mayor into the Yacht Basin, the Buc Days Pro Rodeo showcases current and former world champions competing among top-standing riders for a share of the purse, which in 2011 totaled $175,000. In addition to high-stakes events such as bull riding, steer wresting, and team roping, the competitions feature mutton busters as young as 5 riding atop sheep and barrel racers defending their honor against the world’s fastest-rolling wine casks.
