My Dearest Deadwood fans, it has been a while since I had blogged last. I have been one busy girl, but here I am now to update you more on what is going on in Deadwood. Who is excited to hear more about Deadwood? Well I am guessing it is you since you are reading my blog.
Anyways Mardi Gras is this weekend and I am over the moon for it! It is going to be a great weekend and I can’t wait for Friday to come! Well once again I have other news besides Mardi Gras. I am now going to talk about another Deadwood Chamber event Wild Bill Days!
Deadwood will be kicking off summer with a celebration of the most infamous resident Wild Bill Hickok. Deadwood will be full of country music, flying dogs, and gun slinging on June 17 and 18. Okay, hold on you’re probably thinking I have gone wacko on you with the flying dog thing, but let me explain. One of the most popular events during Wild Bill Days is the Dock Dogs Big Air Wave Competition on Historic Deadwood’s Main Street. See now you understand the flying dog thing and if you have a dog you can register them in the competition if you want to see them fly. Visit www.dockdogs.com for more information.
Free concerts will be going on during these two days of the Wild Bill Days. The Bellamy Brothers will headline Friday night’s concerts, and Joe Diffie will take the stage on Saturday night. Wild Bill Days free concerts are co-sponsored by Budweiser. Music and beer what could be better.
Friday you also get the chance to see all the top performers in the Black Hills region. The people that will take the Wild Bill stage for the Eagle Colgate Country Showdown will have a chance to be one of 15 regional finalists. Don’t forget about the Fast Draw Championships and Old West Show.
Hope this sparks some interest and you clear your schedule to come out to Historic Deadwood on June 17 and 18 for Wild Bill Days.
Have a great week everyone and remember Mardi Gras is this weekend. If I don’t see you then I hope to see you at one of the other Deadwood Chamber events.
