There are live western entertainment shows daily in Big Nose Kate's Saloon and other saloons in Tombstone. They are played by various local ladies and gentelmen, costumed in dresses from 1880'. They play a county sheriff or federal marshal, miners, cowboys, the outlaws as well as the shady ladies (prostitutes). They drink whiskey and beer, dance, play cards, gamble and talk loudly. Sheriff makes annoucements, read new laws and makes order. It's well seen that he is the very important person and others respect him a lot. In the United States a sheriff is generally (but not always) the highest, usually elected, law enforcement officer of a county. The political election of a person to serve as a police leader is an uniquely American tradition. I would like to change my police leader by elections but I can't.
Each day you may see other people and different show in Big Nose Kate's Saloon. You never know who you'll meet at Big Nose Kate's. At my day the show ended with a lot of noice and gas fumes after starting engines of four Harley-Devidson bikes inside the saloon. The playing staff left the saloon on bikes and continued their show for some time on a street.
