14th Annual Pinos Altos October Fiesta
October 1, 2011
10 am to 4 pm
Historic Pinos Altos
October Fiesta has family fun and games, live music, great food, and plenty of vendors in celebration and support of our community spirit. In addition, the Grant County Art Guild (housed near Main Street in the Hearst Church) will host the Annual Purchase Prize Exhibit. The Pinos Altos Museum will all be open and participating. Vendors will offer all types of crafts, jewelry, antiques, collectibles and homemade items.
Step back in history to when the west was wild and enjoy western music, dancing, a bit of history of historic Pinos Altos and other entertainment. The Opera House at the Buckhorn Saloon will be open with special menu selections and a full bar.
The Pinos Altos Ice Cream Parlor (originally the Norton Store), which is known for their delicious treats, will be offering special foods to tempt the palate as well as outdoor dining. Bratwurst and sauerkraut, along with other grilled items, will be served outside where visitors can sit and enjoy the music and festive atmosphere.
A local group of old west gunfighters, lawmen and their ladies decked out in 1880's garb can be seen at the various historic sites along Main Street. They will perform death-defying feats of gunplay against toy balloons, and periodically throughout the day, this infamous group known locally as the Gila Rangers, shoot up the town in re-enactments to the entertainment of all.
