I've been out there several times. I guess they need a new fence to stay in business and it will cost them 30k

I am going to volunteer but not sure if I alone could save the attraction.

I loved Bonnie Springs . I hope some generous fencing companies and some great entertainers can help out financially.

If I still lived there, I definately would volunteer my time to help build a new fence.

I hope they get the money and the fence.

Bonnie is a real character of old Las Vegas and someone should do a book/movie about her life. I bet she could sell her story. She was a showgirl who knew everyone and was one of Howard Hughes' friends. He used to own the ranch 'next door' to Bonnie Springs. She has some real stories to tell.

Nice place to visit especially the Western town, I took so many photos at Bonnie Springs over the years and I find it an interesting place to bring families and visitors, same with the Spring Mountain Ranch State Park.

Haven't been to Bonnie Springs since my too soon grown daughter was a little girl. How she loved the upcloseness to the animals and being scared by the cowboy play gunfight. I still bring back memories of the great big picture window in the church overlooking the desert and mountains. Just brings another tear of good things that are gone from my past.

Just wanted to add that Bonnie Springs will have a new show called Old West Musical Revue every Saturday and Sunday May 26 through August 26 Time: 6:15 pm
Adults: $25.95 Children 4-12: $18.50 Children 3 and under: FREE

A chuck wagon dinner and full bar are available throughout the evening (sold separately)

I think that's a little pricey for Bonnie Springs especially since they charge for everything now, but something new if you need something to do.
