This home movie captures scenes of members of El Paso's Cruz family on a trip to Tucson with the high school marching band where they watch men reenact frontier life in a recreated street from the Old West at Old Tucson theme park. Old Tucson was built in 1939 for the movie “Arizona” and has since been used as the set for several western movies and television programs. It opened as a theme park in 1960 featuring stunt shows and shootouts, as seen in this film.
