Hello all, a wonderful day spent at the Cowboy Festival held at the Melody Ranch and Movie Studio. A recreation of an old western town is the scene here when Wyatt and his gang from the movie Tombstone came through town. Lots of western music, vendors selling western gear and chuckwagon style food could be found at the festival. It was a lot of fun.

Good candid of the Earp Gang on the way to the OK Corral, in fine resolution, and excited onlookers included.
I think Wyatt Earp has been glamourized way beyond reality, a western fantasy, but then most of the West has been written and portrayed in movies fictionally.
Thanks for sharing,

Sounds like a very fun event. I wish to have been there. It really feel like being transport back in time.
Fascinating time in history where lot of movies are based on.

I imagine that there will be a good many people feeing rather envious of you being able to attend such a colourful festival.
You have done well here to capture the notorious Wyatt Earp and gang here in flamboyant fashion.
Looks a lot of fun.
Kind regards Les.

I hope you're safe! nice framing, you've got the whole gang and have almost hidden all the tourists, and so we can think it was taken years ago during the Far West history!
