Shoot Out at the Chaparral takes Old Tucson by storm Saturday and Sunday, February 16th and 17th! Gunfighters and Western Characters from all over the country converge at Old Tucson, competing for titles, performing before judges from film and performance industries.
Lawdawgs, Outlaws, Wild Women of the West and a variety of western characters will compete each day for the title of “Last, and Best, Gunfight Group Standing.” Presented by Old Tucson in conjunction with Dr. Buck Productions, the Shoot-Out promises to be one of the biggest and most unique competition experiences ever created in the history of Gunfighter group gatherings!
Unique characteristics of this event include:
· The Competition: Overall show content, characters, presentation, acting skills, wardrobe, showmanship and safety
· The Judges: Who hail from the performance and film industries
· The Venue: The original Ranch House set made famous by the TV series the High Chaparral! The competing Gunfight and Reenactment groups won’t be dispensing lead and six gun justice in front of false façade sets – they will feel like they are actually “shooting” on location!
Just a few spur jingles away, interactive event and performance “Duel in the Sun Cowboy Fast Draw” will be hosted by the Old Pueblo Gunfighters. Guests will not only witness some of the Fastest Guns in the Southwest, but can test just how fast they would have been back in the Old West by participating in the Town Alley Shootout.
In addition to witnessing competitions, reenactments and interactive gun slinging, guests also will experience:
· Old Tucson stunt shows based on actual events that took place in 19th century Tucson.
· Living History Presentations on topics like History of the Stagecoach, the Mercantile and Sheriffs of the Old West.
· A musical salute to life in a frontier town celebrating cowboys and our local Mexican heritage.
· A multi-media stroll down movie memory lane with Old Tucson’s Musical History of the Silver Screen recounting films made on these dusty streets.
…and much more!
