Rouse, Trail Boss at the group, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We
will be setting up a living history, including tents and tee-pees,
for people to have an insight into how Native Americans and pioneers
would have lived. Visitors to the re-enactment will be able to
enter these 'homes' to look around and ask questions of the inhabitants."
involved in the re-enactment will be dressed in the style of the
era and there will be mock examples of gun fights, which were
typical in the Wild West during the 1800s and the Native Americans
will be performing traditional dances in full regalia."
will also be various Western-themed side shows and games for both
children and adults to take part in, including pony rides and
cactus hoopla, where contestants must attempt to throw hoops onto
the arms of a cactus."
