ENID, OK: Tombstone Tales
October 6 - October 7
The stories of a marshal gunned down in a saloon on the downtown Square and a woman who shot up the courthouse are among the historic tales to be re-enacted during Tombstone Tales in October.
Tickets to the event, set for Oct. 6 and 7, are on sale now at the Visit Enid Welcome Center, located on the corner of Garriott and Independence. Tickets are $15 per person.
Tours begin at 6 p.m. each day. Tours start every 25 minutes so those purchasing tickets may choose the time convenient to them, Tombstone Tales Producer Errol Wofford said.
The tours are tractor-drawn wagon rides — with tractors and wagons provided by P&K Equipment — stopping at about 11 tombstones, where re-enactment characters come out and portray the person buried there, he said.
“We’ve got some really good stories to tell. This is not a spook ride of any kind, it’s more of a history lesson,” Wofford said.
Enid Cemetery Board will serve hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks and chips before and after each tour, he said.
