The PBR Challenger Series will be making its way back to Evansville for the Bulls and Ghouls event.

In May, PBR took over the Ford Center for two back-to-back sold out nights of excitement. Following the success of those nights, it was only a matter of time before PBR would return to the area, and it didn't take long at all. Once again in 2022, you'll have the opportunity to see firsthand, seasoned veterans and eager newcomers take on some of the most famous bucking bulls in the division when the PBR Challenger Series makes it's way to the Vanderburgh County Fairgrounds in October.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
