Union, Mo. – It was an amazing Saturday night at the Franklin County Fair and I'm not referring to Randy Houser. I am talking about the 1st Annual Kathy Prilwetz Memorial Professional Bull Ridding entertainment, in which the story behind the event might cause one to shed a tear.
First I have to say, "Holy Cow" what a show. Unlike a rodeo where bull riding is the last event, Saturday, bull riding was the only event. Fans did not see just a handful of bull riders they watched 20 cowboys each ride two of the finest breed of bulls.
The story behind Saturday's class act of an event is like a story out of a movie. Grab a tissue.
Ben Prilwetz, St. Clair native and now Union resident with his wife Amanda, was the producer for Saturday night's event. This means that everything from the entertainment, to the cowboys and bulls; everything you saw was produced by Prilwetz.
