Bull riding, motocross and a tractor pull are part of a new, action-packed event at the California Mid-State Fair this summer.

Bikes, Bulls & Pulls will be held at the Paso Robles Event Center on July 29, the final day of the 2018 fair.

In addition to professional bull riding, off-road motorcycle racing and a tractor and truck pull featuring Cal Poly's Mustang Legacy tractor, Bikes, Bulls & Pulls features specialty events such as mutton busting — in which small children attempt to ride irate sheep.

A news release promises that the action will "move at an almost frantic pace from one event to another and back again."
