Death Valley Fall Festival The Death Valley Fall Festival is on the immediate horizon and promises to be informative, fun and a whopping great time. The event is sponsored by the Death Valley Chamber of Commerce and will be held November 1-2 in the quaint town of Shoshone, Calif. Shoshone is a short 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and a mere 28 miles from the boomtown of Pahrump. Shoshone is two miles outside the southeast boundary of breathtaking Death Valley National Park and is an authentic part the Death Valley legend. The Death Valley Fall Festival is a perfect time to begin your love affair with this mysterious region or to escape the mundane and continue your desert adventure. The Festival kicks offon November I at 10 a.m. with the Main Street Parade. During the two day gathering there is something for everyone. Wares of every variety can be purchased during the Open Air Market and the Shoshone Craft Show features only hand made items. The Death Valley Gems & Minerals Show brings the desert's most beautiful treasures to you. Those who want a challenge will enjoy NORBA (Na- tional Off Road Bike Association) sanctioned Death Valley Back Roads Bike Race, especially designed to test the metal of mountain bike fans. But be forewarned, this is not a race for whimps and whiners. Seasoned horse people will want to join in for the Old Spanish Trail Ride (bring your own horse) and trace the tracks of the likes of Kit Carson and John C. Fremont through beautiful river canyons and unusual desert terrain. Jim Cadigan will be the trailboss and the ride includes a souvenir and deep pit mesquite barbecue, as well as drinks on the trail. Four wheel drive affs will be led by seasoned desert ily, the Shabby Scalliwags and Bobby K. and the Country Traditions. And, that's not all. The foot tapping music of Super Blue Grass and Hoot & Holler is in store. And don't forget the fiddlers'jam, open mike session and music around the bonfire after dark. Magic will not only be in the air, but on the ground, too, with Magic by bay area illusionist Victor Kent. Kent will amaze and entertain both Saturday and Sunday. The Nevada Silver Tappers will present their high energy dance routines and we may even have a square dance or two. Gospel music and Native American greetings will be celebrated Sunday morning, and the list goes on and on. The Las Vegas High Roller & Strollers have cho- sen a beautiful trail for the Volksmarch (non-competi- tive walk) and, with the year around Amargosa Canyon Volks Trail, this can be a two event weekend for Volkssport fans. The homemade deep pit mesquite barbecue will make your mouth water and other culinary delights abound.
