Once a year, visitors gather in the quaint mountain town of Greer, AZ to kick off summer in a unique way that only Greer can. With a Wild West shootout to start up the events, the weekend of June 9-11 will bring forth western history and outdoor fun in a wonderful, family-friendly manner.

After the afore-mentioned shootout on Friday, the spectacle will turn to a parade Saturday morning through the only street in town at 10 AM! Afterwards, there will be fun kids’ activities and local crafts and artwork for sale along Main Street.
