BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Have you ever ridden a mechanical bull?

Professional bull riders set up a play area in the town square on Thursday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., just in time to attract the lunch crowd. One little boy got a tame version of the ride, which was so popular in the 80's.

Professional bull riding comes to the River Center on August 15-16th.

As an additional treat, they had free cotton candy and snow cones.
