Renowned fiddler at Wild West City
BYRAM — Don’t let the Back to School commercials fool you. There’s still plenty of summer fun to be had at Wild West City!
In addition to 22 live-action events daily, from reenactments of famous Old West shootouts to interactive outlaw searches, and from Can-Can dancing to the story of a lovable, bumbling undertaker, August at Wild West City offers two special guests.
See how those heading out west made camp and cooked their meals when the Chuck Wagon settles just off the City’s main street August 17-19. The Chuck Wagon was an important aspect of traveling by caravan, storing all the necessary equipment for the rest of the group to eat during the perilous journey.
Renowned fiddler David Rimelis will be in Dodge from Aug. 25-26. A popular visitor to Wild West City, Rimelis will play multiple sets throughout the day. Take a break from the hubbub on Main Street to listen as he plays an array of period instruments.
For families looking to ease their youngest members back into the school spirit, Wild West City is the place to go. The Best of the West in the Heart of the East, the City’s Main Street is a replica of 1880s Dodge City with educational displays to explore throughout the park, creating a living, breathing history lesson.
Wild West City is open 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily during the summer. Admission is $18 for adults and $16 for children 2-11, with discounts for seniors and large groups. Admission includes access to live shows, barnyard zoo, historical displays, gold panning, and lots of fun. Parking is free.
