The 1875 Campo gunfight killed more people and lasted longer than the infamous shootout at the O.K. corral. But few people have heard about this long-lost true tale from East County’s colorful past.
But on March 23 at 3 p.m., “Campo: The Forgotten Gunfight” will be reenacted outside at the Golden Acorn Casino. The show is free and open to all ages. Come learn how local marksmen and townspeople foiled bandits’ plans to rob the entire town.
The event will take place rain or shine, and cover will be provided in the event of inclement weather.
The Golden Acorn is located just off I-8 in Campo. For information and directions, visit http://www.goldenacorn.com/
