CALICO HERITAGE FESTIVAL 2002
Pictures and report submitted by KK.
Many visitors to this site will know KK. She is a close friend of Peter Brown's and attends many of the festivals with him. I myself have had the pleasure of meeting KK and she is a lovely lady.
year the weather cooperated unlike last year when the festival was ravaged by
high winds. Besides Mo Hunt who owns the rifle from the show
"Rifleman" and one could have a picture taken with that very rifle -
Peter Brown, Alex Cord and Bob Fuller were the only celebrities in Calico.
They were set up in a tent and even though it rained very lightly on and off on
Friday, they had a great time mingling with the folks at the Festival.
and Sunday it was cool and dry and the sun came out most of the time so a nice
crowd was drawn to Calico Ghost Town. "Singing Cowboy" and
another band were playing music throughout the weekend right across from the
tent (which sometimes was so loud that one couldn't hear a thing) and people
danced in the street. Kowboy Kal
- who is in the Guiness Book of World Records for
several accomplishments with his rope - showed
his skill all three days as well, being incredible with the children (who also
loved his horse). He even taught Alex how to do a loop and Alex didn't too
do bad for a 10 minute lesson. On Sunday Kal
actually attempted his World Record of doing a loop with a 100 ft. rope and
succeeded twice .... if I
understood him right he had never done it while standing on his horse.
Overall the Festival was a success and we enjoyed our time in Calico....
