Rose Festival (copy)

Draped in roses, Penny Benson and her mule, Kahoots, were one of the entries in last year's Rose Festival parade in Tombstone. 

In a town known for its gunfight shows and street brawls, Tombstone will be showcasing its softer side Saturday when the Vigilettes host the town’s annual Rose Festival.

Festivities start Friday evening with the coronation of the Rose Queen — held at the Rose Museum, 118 S. Fourth St. — with four Tombstone High School girls vying for the honor.
