LEWISTON – The thunder of the hooves will be heard again at Coopers Ville U.S.A. on Saturday, Sept 1 and Sunday, Sept. 2, as the annual Cowboy Days return to Northern Michigan.
The yearly event brings famous cowboy and cowgirl heroes and family-friendly events to the faux western town of Coopers Ville, designed to look like a town from an old western movie or TV show.

The Gun Fight at the O.K. Corral will be reenacted each day at noon and 3 p.m. There will also be fast draw competitions, knife and hachet throwing, mechanical bull rides, shoot-outs, chicken bingo, blacksmith demonstration, wagon rides, music, 50/50 drawings, door prizes, a lunch wagon and more.
Coopers Ville is an open air museum located halfway between Lewiston and Grayling, just off of North Down River Road (Miller Road in Oscoda County) at 1860 Fire Tower Road, just east of the Crawford-Oscoda County Line.
