Tombstone Territorial Days – Change of Venue Update
Due to unforeseen circumstances there have been some venue changes. The Encampment, Spencer & Jackson’s Variety Show and the Chuck Wagon Cook-Offare not at the old high school football field. The location for these three events will now be located at the middle parking lot on 6th Street just below the Bird Cage theatre. We apologize for the inconvenience and have lowered the price of the chuck wagon meals to $12.00 each. Please inform the general public if they are unaware of the changes already. We would also like to thank Mayor Escapule and the City of Tombstone for corning to our aid swiftly to accommodate our unforeseen situation. Also, Mr. Meeks was unable to attend to speak about John Slaughter, but Rod Tinamus will be filling his time slot and will be speaking about Doc Holliday.
