September 29th, 2017 by Amanda with 2 comments

We went to this Festival the last couple of  years, it is one of our Favorites.  It reminded me of going to my Aunt’s Cabin in Arizona and stopping in a little town, on the way, that was western themed with the stores, shows, and food!

The festival takes you back in time to the historic American era, of the Wild West.   The permanent old west town is home to everything you would expect to see in Dodge City circa 1878.  You will enjoy historically accurate shows, gunfights, jailbreaks, and more.

And what would the old west be without a good ole’ fashioned gunfight?

Four times daily starting at noon, there are gunfight re-enactments and trick shooting.

    My fave thing about fall is looking at the beautiful vivid leaves against the bright blue sky. Great feeling!

    Fall is not the blazing summer or the freezing winter!
