The glory days of Calico will be relived as Calico Ghost Town presents the 53rd annual Calico Days Celebration, Sept. 28 and 29.
The town will come alive with music, shows, and games for every age that will recall the days when silver mining was king. Returning to Calico Days this year is the Pico Pistolero Old West Card Room.
Learn how to play the table games of the old west like The Earps, Bat Masterson and Doc Holiday. Even join in a “Q & A” session with Mr. Doc Holiday himself.
Between the music and games, make sure to take a stroll through the Old West encampment on Main Street. Guests are invited to wander through this living historical display, interact with the “towns people,” and see how life was lived during that era.
Enjoy hands-on activities, such as, arrowhead making, adobe brick making, rope making and more.
Favorite features of past Calico Days events will also return, including the Old West Character Costume Contest, The Miner’s Triathlon, old west gunfight shows, and the crowd favorite — Burro Run.
Calico Ghost Town shops and attractions will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission to the event is $10 for adults, $5 for youth (4-11), and free for children 3 and under. Camping reservations may be booked by calling (800) 86-CALICO. Calico also offers cabins and bunkhouses. www.calicotown.com
