BRAY (aka Snake River Junction)
Walk just the few feet from a gravel parking lot in rural Bray and you're in another century.
Crossing over a wooden bridge with a handwritten sign announcing it as the Snake River, you enter a town called Snake River Junction. You won't find it on any maps, just in the fertile imagination of its creator, Orvel Robinson.
The town will be open to visitors on Saturday starting at 1 p.m., and Robinson said a special day is planned.
There will be a lot of different entertainers, gunfights between the Marlow Gunfighters and the Snake River Gang and working blacksmiths.
Entertainment will take place throughout the day starting with Nancy Cox Borum performing at 1:30 p.m. Friends of Dulcimer will perform at 2:10 p.m. followed by clogger Megan Craig.
At 3 p.m. the Alan Biffle Band will take the stage and the band will play with Jessica Farmer around 3:30 p.m.
Throughout the afternoon Erica Robinson will be performing.
There will be a $5 charge to enter the town. Children 5 and under are free. The gates will close at 5 p.m.
Visitors to the town which includes a church, cemetery, bank, various stores, a cafe, an authentic blacksmith shop with working forge, a saloon, music hall and, of course, a jail will notice that, so far, there are no homes.
It's a town where there is no such thing as concealed carry of firearms it's all out in the open. Pistols, rifles and shotguns abound since gunfights often break out in the street.
It's a town of dreams Robinson's dream said his sister Erma Potts.
