Tons of movies were filmed at this Western set. Remember the TV show Deadwood? It was filmed here with other Westerns such as , The Lone Ranger, Wyatt Earp, Gunsmoke, Hopalong Cassidy, Annie Oakley, Rin Tin Tin, The Cisco Kid, Tall Tails, Last Man Standing, and Magnificent Seven.
THIS EVENT IS CROSS POSTED.
Please allow time to find parking, getting tickets (if you haven't already), and taking the shuttle/bus to the Ranch.
Please NOTE there will be 2 meeting times:
1) We'll meet in front of the Museum, which is inside the park/Ranch, @11am. We'll wait no more than 15 minutes for everyone.
2) I will meet in front of the Museum, which is inside the park/Ranch, @2pm. I will wait for no more than 15 minutes. Then, we will rejoin the rest of the group.
Everyone meet in front of the museum @11am. We will be a large group (since this event is cross posted), so it will be hard not to miss us.
We'll tour the museum (free, with admission to the park). Walk around the park and get some lunch.
Continue to explore the park.
I will then meet anyone coming @2pm (please see above). We'll tour the museum briefly (if you wish), then join the rest of the group.
We will leave the festival around 6pm.
Tickets are $ 20, buy in advance on website.
