Western shootouts, demonstratons and vendors at Sisters Wild WEst Show and craft fair, what's hoped to be an annual event

SISTERS, Ore. -

Sisters took a trip back in time on Sunday.

It was the first annual 'Sisters Wild West Show' and craft fair at Creekside Park.

The event drew thousands of people over the weekend to about 50 vendors, selling Western-themed crafts, antiques and other goods.

The Pine Mountain Posse held shoot-out skits in front of a backdrop of an old Western town, shooting blanks and performing comedy.

"We had a good crowd," said spokesman Wade Palmer. "And what was really cool was the children -- the kids were so enamored with the cowboys, taking a lot of photographs with us, and just in awe, and it was really nice to see."

La Pine blacksmith Chuck Weishoff showed off his skill at an ancient trade: making art and tools out of metal.

"It's pretty intriguing," Weishoff said. "The kids are really interested in it, because it's something they've never seen. When I can touch the kids that way, with my artwork, I dig it, because it's not a video game."

The Museum at Warm Springs also had a booth and offered information on Native American heritage.
