Grab your Stetson partner, and let’s head out to the Old West fest.
One of the favorite and most exciting features is the gunfight; it is very realistic with actors in full costume firing rifles and pistols in a ‘staged’ shootout. This is a very genuine and unique old west town built with complete storefronts, a bank, jailhouse, and other attractions.
I found that the building facades were really original and the costumes of all involved were period correct.
There is a train ride, horse rides, covered wagon ride, and many concessions; the food is somewhat limited, but the service and prices are OK.
You’ll find displays of civil war artifacts, including tents, weapons and uniforms and there are also several other western-themed artifacts.
My three grandsons, 3, 7 and 11 all had a very enjoyable time as did I. It’s definitely worth a visit to The Old West. We went to the Old West Fest last year and can’t wait to go back again this year!
