In preparation for a yearly rodeo show in Moline, nearly 100 truckloads of dirt were dumped inside the iWireless Center.

The World’s Toughest Rodeo returns to the iWireless Center on Friday and Saturday, January 24 and 25, 2014. On Thursday crews brought in 70 truckloads of dirt and spread it around 3-inches thick to set up for the show.

Fans will see events like Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Barrel Racing, and even Ostrich Racing. Guests are invited to join the cowboys and entertainers in the dirt for the Free Preshow. Fans can take photos with them, get autographs, enjoy free pony rides, and see the animal superstars.

The rodeo begins at 7:30 p.m. and the Preshow starts at 6 p.m. each night. Tickets are available at the arena box office or online through Ticketmaster.
