Event Details

The Great Freedom Bank Robbery and Shootout

"Held on Saturday during the Freedom Rodeo and Old Cowhand Reunion"

Freedom, Oklahoma, with its rustic western Main Street, the Annual rodeo and Old Cowhand Reunion, the Cimarron Cowboy Monument, and many other historical points of interest, has quietly preserved its Western heritage over a period of time when most cities and towns placed an accent on modernization.

One of the most recent reflections of days gone by coordinated by the townspeople of Freedom erupts in a blaze of gunfire and smoke, when "The Great Freedom Bank Robbery and Shootout" unfolds Saturday afternoon on Main Street.

The Characters involved in the shootout aren't paid professionals, and the show doesn't employ a high dollar director. The participants are all local townspeople who volunteer "just for the fun of it". The cast includes merchants, business persons, ranchers, retirees, housewives, and yes - even the real banker himself.

You may have to use a little bit of imagination to ignore the paved streets, a few pickups parked here and there, and a whole bunch of other on-lookers-but when a gang of gun-totin' misfits rides into this quaint little cow town, stirs up the townsfolk, and decides to make off with all the money in the bank, you'll see, hear, and feel the real old west as all "HELL" surely does break loose...
