Kids throughout the Central Valley have been eagerly waiting a whole year to get their next six seconds of glory. That time has finally come!
The Big Fresno Fair is proud to be the official home of the 2012 wool warriors world finals after wildly successful stints at the Big Fresno Fair dating back to 2009.

The young riders are taught the value of safety, confidence and sportsmanship, all while having a great time! This is sure to be one show that the entire family can enjoy as they experience all of the entertainment and thrills of the "toughest sport on wool."
