Buccaneer Days: Arrr You Ready?

CORPUS CHRISTI - The 77th Buccaneer Days Celebration is ready to get underway in the Coastal Bend.

An annual event in Corpus Christi since the late 1930's, this year's edition offers a variety of entertainment, including rodeos, musical performances, parades and a carnival, which begins this evening (April 24th) at 5 PM. Other popular features include the Dunking of the Mayor, which is scheduled for 6 PM tonight (April 24th) along the downtown bayfront, and the Buc Days Junior Parade, which is set to begin Saturday morning at 11 AM at Shoreline Blvd. and Mann Street. The popular illuminated night parade will take place Saturday, May 3rd at 8 PM.

If bull riding and calf roping are more up your alley, then you'll want to be sure to catch all of the action at the Buc Days Pro Rodeo, which runs April 24th through 27th inside the American Bank Center.

This year, KRIS Communications is sponsoring a free Park & Ride opportunity in cooperation with the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority. Parking will be available in the KRIS Communications lot at Blucher St. and Comanche St. In addition to riding to Buc Days events for free, you will also get $3 off each Adult gate ticket and $1 off each Child gate ticket.
