Shriners at Chloride

KINGMAN - Chloride is going back to its silver mining camp origins.

Starting at 11 a.m. on June 28, the town located 23 miles north of Kingman will host its annual Old Miner's Day celebration at Cyanide Springs on Elkhart.

The day kicks off with a shootout performance by the Black Mountain Gunfighters.

The activities continue with a parade at high noon down Tennessee Avenue, featuring classic and antique vehicles, the Masonic Shriners and floats. At 1 p.m., the Wild Roses of Chloride, an all-female gunfighting group, will perform at Cyanide Springs.

Throughout the day, the Old Miner's Day Committee will draw raffle winners.

Raffle prizes range from gift cards to jewelry.

Visitors can examine the old jail or antique fire engine used by the Chloride Volunteer Fire Department.

Vendors will also be on hand with their goods.
