Well Hey there Deadwood Fans!
My Name is Katie and Iâ€™m the Deadwood Chamber summer intern (formally known as â€œKatie the Internâ€) and I will be your new blogger until August when I have to run back to the University of South Dakota, so here we go!!!
This weekend is the kick off for summer here in Deadwood; we have the Deadwood Alive gunfights beginning TODAY on Historic Main Street, as well as the first Trial of Jack McCall and the reenactment of the murder of Wild Bill.
All will be happening daily (except Mondays) for the rest of the summer.
You can catch the gunslingers at 2pm in front of the Four Aces, 4pm in front of The Celebrity Hotel, and at 6pm in front of the Silverado.
Also the Trial of Jack McCall is held at the Masonic Temple every night (again, except Mondays) at 8pm
And the murder of Wild Bill Hickok will take place in Saloon #10 at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm.
Alsoâ€¦The Broken Book Gold Mine Opens TOMORROW (May 23) so get out there and see how Deadwood got her start with a mine tour and try your hand at gold panning- you might just finding a nugget of shiny stuff for yourself! Theyâ€™re open daily from 9-5â€¦fun for all ages!
For more information on any Deadwood attractions, give us a call at the chamber at 1-800-999-1876 or (605) 578-1876
And you know the Beer’s cold year round in Deadwood, so nothing’s changed there!
Come out and spend a summer night or two…or three with us in Deadwood!
Over and Out,
-Katie the Intern
