Go back 128 years with the AZ Gunfighters

On Oct. 24, the Rockin’ R Ranch and Arizona Gunfighters will take you back to that cold October day in 1881 when the law and the lawless met in Tombstone in what has become the most famous face-to-face showdown in the history of the Western frontier – the gunfight at the OK Corral.

The evening will feature an all-you-can-eat chuck wagon dinner and a stage show with music and humor of the “Old West” with the “world famous” Rockin’ R Wranglers. Then step outside and back in time with the Arizona Gunfighters as they re-create the tragic event in the life of “Wild Bill” Hickok, a critical event in the life of “Doc” Holliday, and see for yourself what really happened in that vacant lot near the OK Corral.

Rockin’ R Ranch is located at 6136 E. Baseline Road in Mesa. The ranch opens at 5:30 p.m., dinner is served at 6:30 p.m., the stage show gets under way at 7:30 p.m. followed by the Arizona Gunfighters show at 8:30 p.m. The cost is $28 for adults, $26 for seniors and $18 for children.
