Watch out! Every hour on the hour during the Ogden Pioneer Days festival a big bad gang of rustlers, wranglers, and robbers are set to heist the loot from our stage coach in a real-action-right-down-to-the-gunsmoke-re-enactment on east two-bit street. Will they get away with it? Or will our stage coach posse be saved by frontier justice courtesy of the brave sheriff and his deputies? It all builds to a grand showdown shootout at high noon! Who ends up as buzzard food? You'll just have to be there to see for yourself, folks. Also, stage coach rides will be given throughout the days events.
time: 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
