Ever wondered what it'd be like to go back the the old west? Your wish can come true at the Colorado Railroad Museum's Wild West Day on Saturday, June 21st!

 

Take a step back in time on a day filled with re-enactors, booths, old fashioned train rides, and festivities for everyone!

 

I got to talk to two of the actors who will be wandering about the rails, Lee Michels and David T. Wright. They say when you come to this event, you get a glimpse of the old life! There will be historical displays, old fashioned train robberies, and of course sharpshooting! While you're there, you might even run into one of the best outlaws who lived; like Doc Holiday, Annie Oakley, maybe even Buffalo Bill! When you come, Lee says to come in costume and have fun with it! What's the Old West without any prairie girls or farmer boys? I thought it was interesting that the actors know so much about their characters and the history of the Wild West. So, if you have any questions or want to know something about anything they know it!  Also, all of the old west characters are ready to take pictures with your family.  Ms. Michels also said their is always a competition between the men and women to see who will end up with the money from the train robbery!  Come on down to find out!

 

Mr. Donald Tallman, the executive director of the museum, added that there is something for everyone to do including story telling using sign language, a nationally recognized historic author, an old west saloon complete with gambling and family friendly drinks, and rides on an 1880's steam train!  Of course, Mr. Tallman said that safety is their top priority, so you don't have to worry about getting hurt in those old west gun fights!  The museum also offers all kinds of trains that you get to experience first hand.  They also have a new exhibit about the history of hobo's in railroading!  You may want to grab your stick and handkerchief for that one!

From being to many events at the Colorado Railroad Museum, from birthday parties-to a Day Out With Thomas, Wild West Day will most certainly be one the the best ones yet! So all aboard! And don't miss this one of a kind 'time traveling' event!
