Started in the 1920s as a tribute to mini ng, the name was changed as mines closed and Death Valley 11 IF (DV) tourism became a major economic resource in the sparsely populated desert communities. Enthusiastic supporters waved and cheered as parade par- ticipants marched, drove and rode the short distance comprising Shoshone's Main Street. Then to everyone's delight, especially those with cameras, the parade made a U-turn and retraced the route. The Old Spanish Trail Ride on Saturday morning was a hit with equestrians. People who like the scenery better from the seat of a vehicle went on the guided 4x4 caravan. Two wheel enthusiasts entered the back roads bike race. For those who would rather walk than fide, the Volksmarch was an alternative on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. No need to walk or ride anywhere to have a terrific time. Cowboy poet Walt Hagans, magic by Victor Kent, the Red Tail Native Drummers and Dancers, the Nevada Silver Tappers, Silver Star Strutters and Southern Nevada Bluegrass provided first-rate, free entertainment. The Frontiersmen kept the spirit of the old west alive with guns blazing. Hapless bystanders were often dragged off COWGIRLS - The Nevada SHver Tappers delight the crowd as they tap to a western tune at the Death Valley Fall Festival on Saturday. photo by Patti Babcock to jail until someone posted bail. Food for every fancy was delicious and plentiful. The DV Gems and Mineral Show, Shoshone craft show and an open air market provided a feast for the eyes and fun for shoppers.
