Helldorado Days Tombstone, Arizona October 20, 2013

Helldorado Days began as a celebration of Tombstone's 50th anniversary in 1929. The festival has occurred every year since. Events include skits conducted by street reenactment groups, dancing, a parade and live music. Many people also dress up in 19th century outfits with rifles or six shooters. Photos on this blog include reenactment groups from Tombstone, Wilcox and Yuma. For more information on Helldorado Days go to the Tombstone Chamber of Commerce Website. (Some information on this post from the website).
