Old Lincoln Days has been celebrated the first full week-end in August since 1939, with the exception of two years during World War II. Visitors will enjoy re-enactors, music, performances of the Last Escape of Billy the Kid, performed on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoon following the parade on Sunday morning. The Last Escape of Billy the Kid is perhaps the longest running folk art play in the United States with famed New Mexico artist Peter Hurd having once played Billy the Kid in the premier performance. Today all of the actors are local talents, whose interest and participation are greatly enjoyed and appreciated. Vendors available.
