Have A Great Fall

Stuntmen Gary Salisbury and John Casino dramatize the beginning of fall in this photo from Knott's Berry Farm taken in the 1970s.
The Wagon Camp opened in Knott's Ghost Town in 1949. It served as a venue for live performances of Western and folk music until 1974, when the stage was altered for the new Wild West Stunt Show. A version of the show is still popular today.
In 1980, Universal Studios Hollywood opened the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show -- which may or may not have actually been three times as wild as the Knott's version.
(And yes, today is the first day of Fall.)
