cards515x385

Come learn the finer points of this popular game made famous in the Old West from the legendary character “Doc Holliday”! When Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday holstered their six-guns and sat down at a frontier saloon to gamble, they wouldn’t play poker. It was this game that has stood the test of time.

FREE TAG-A-KID SERVICE

Lost little ones are no fun!

Mosey on over to our FREE TAG-A-KID service in the Half-Pint Hootenanny and we’ll collect your info and place a wristband on the kids If you are separated, we can help round ‘em up.

Found children are herded back to the Half-Pint Hootenanny (until 7pm).   After that, we cuff ‘em (not really!) and head ‘em up to the Hoosegow (the Police Station on site).

Big crowds can be like a giant round-up to kids — to avoid separating from them, give your kids the same advice you would if you were anywhere else: don’t go off with strangers or anyone without telling you first. If they get lost, have them ask for help from a policeman, a security steward, any festival staff with a radio, or another adult with children.
