Burro Days

Festival - Part 2: The Shootout

This is the second part of my series on the mountain festival I attended recently. Apart from the races there are many other events. A highlight every year are the reinactments.

There is a group that participates in period (Old West) attire and stages shootouts.

The first four photos are of a performance and demonstration. They use blank cartridges in their weapons, but it is still plenty loud and smoky. They staged a store robbery and did a little skit. There was also a demonstration of shooting a hole in a water bottle to show people that blanks are still dangerous if you stand too close (third photo).

Then there was a big shootout on the street. I could not capture that much of it, it went down so fast! I hope at least a little of the atmosphere comes across. If it weren't for the spectators and cars you'd think it still the 1800s. 😎

    @Ayano It's part of history. Back in those days everyone was armed and the law was not that well organized. Gangs did roam the land and citizen posses were formed to go against criminals. More than the shootouts I really enjoy the period attire (and their characters) and being able to try to capture it all in photographs. 😃
