Tombstone’s Wild West Days Shoots Its’ Way into Town This Weekend

Road Trip Alert! Tombstone’s 10th Annual Wild West Days is this weekend!  Activities include Street Entertainment Gunfights, a USO Canteen Dance at Big Nose Kate’s Saloon, Belly Dancers,  and a Parade on Saturday.  On Sunday, you can celebrate St. Patty’s Day in Wild West style!  Join the St. Pat’s party at the Crystal Palace.

The Tombstone Wild West Days is sponsored by the Wild West Detachment Marine Corps League and the Merchants of the City of Tombstone. A portion of the net proceeds will be donated to the United Services Organization (USO) to support our military at home and overseas.

In addition this weekend is a celebration to Gunsmoke’s most lovable character: Festus.
