 TIFTON—Rodeo fans will fill the stands on April 1-2 when Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College presents its annual “Gee Haw Whoa Back” rodeo as a part of Homecoming Week 2016.

Spectators will be entertained with riveting competition during the Professional Cowboy Association-sanctioned rodeo event at the ABAC Arena which begins at 7:30 p.m. each evening. Gates open at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for children 6–12 years old and free to ABAC students and children five years old and under.  Rodeo tickets will be sold in advance and at the gate on the two days of the event.
