Val Kilmer to visit Tombstone for Old West-themed event

By The Associated Press

TOMBSTONE, Ariz. (AP) — Val Kilmer is coming to Tombstone for an event to celebrate the life of Doc Holliday.

The actor famously portrayed the gunslinger in the 1993 movie "Tombstone."

Kilmer will participate in several events at Doc Holli-Days, including riding in a horse-drawn stagecoach while serving as grand marshal in a parade. He will also meet with fans and attend a birthday party for Holliday but he won't participate in any gunfight re-enactments.

Tombstone was once a bustling mining town that became synonymous with the wild west following the shootout at the O.K. Corral involving Holliday and Wyatt Earp.

The mines shut down years ago, but the town near the U.S.-Mexico border remains a popular tourist destination.

Its gunfight re-enactments are the big draw.
