Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in the Old West? Now is your chance at the 15th Annual Fall Back Festival! Round up the whole family and herd them over to this educational and entertaining event where admission is free and so is the fun.
Fall back in time on November 8, 2015 from 11am – 4pm. Enjoy this adventure back to the 1880s while three blocks of the Gaslamp Quarter are transformed into a western town of the past. Stroll through the time-warped streets filled with traditional western storefronts, museums, a sarsaparilla saloon, a penny candy store, a town jail, and even live historical recreations. Get the kids involved with old fashioned activities such as gold panning, butter churning, and candle dipping. The festival will also feature food booths, a magician, caricatures, vintage cars, arts and crafts, contests, and more. Make sure not to miss out on face painting, pony rides, and an old fashion carnival alley. Fall Back Festival is a great opportunity to engage the whole family in the magical atmosphere of the Old West.
Admission is free at Fall Back Festival though there is a small fee for some of the activities. But with an abundance of historical demonstrators and interactive activities, contest, and entertainment stages, this is the perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon with family and friends. Fall Back Festival is produced by the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation to support their mission of preserving the history and culture of the Gaslamp Quarter and provide a living history of San Diego.
