How to Enjoy the Fall Festival

This year will mark the 60th year since the first one, so yes, it’s a pretty big deal and it won’t disappoint! According to some of the early residents of Pahrump, there were a few years that is wasn’t held, but when they brought it back it was bigger and better than ever.
