Calico Ghost Town Bluegrass Spring Festival
Calico Ghost Town
Calico Ghost Town near Barstow California is having its Bluegrass in the Spring Festival May 8 and 9 (Mothers Day Weekend). New acts are coming to perform and there will be an Art of the West show - Western art by Western artists. But the big news is that The Nelsons (Matthew and Gunnar) are going to be performing to sets of "Ricky Nelson Remembered" at this event on Mother's Day. Not only a touch of "star power" is new for this event; the RNR show is interactive. Calico is a historic silver mining Ghost Town located high up in the Calico Mountains of Souther California. The town still has many of the original buildings and is now operated by the San Bernardino County Parks System as a tourist and camping destination. www.calicotown.com
