Join us for the "Last Escape of Billy the Kid" folk pageant. The episodes of the pageant are based on historical facts of the notorious Lincoln County War, and in particular its focus is centered upon the best remembered of its fighters, Billy the Kid. The Pageant portrays many scenes to include the killing of John Tunstall which precipitated Billy's wrathful vengeance, the Battle of Blazer's Mill in which the courageous "Buckshot Roberts" stood off Billy and his twelve cohorts, the siege of the McSween House, up to Billy's incarceration in the Lincoln County Courthouse and his remarkable escape. This re-enactment was first presented in 1940 and centers around the life of the legendary outlaw, Billy the Kid.
