The Second Saturday event of last weekend drew a small group of out-of-towners as well as locals to the tour of Willowbrook Cemetery and to the shootout on the square. This is the number two Second Saturday event which usually begins with the Farmers Market and ends with the shootout. In between are opportunities for shopping and lunching in town before the display of costumes and ammunition appropriate to the times. The shootout was a re-enactment of an 1861 event; it was scheduled to be the exact day of the happening, 152 years later: May 11, 1861, re-enacted May 11, 2013.
Second Saturday will continue next month, the date being June 8. A schedule of events will be posted prior to that date, on this Web site.
