Randsburg is a strange little place. Some will think it's cute I guess but it kind of looks like a forgotten town. There are a lot of old buildings and a western type main strip. Nothing was really open.

Old West Day is on Sept. 17 this year and starts at 8:00AM with a pancake breakfast. It is listed as a one day event. I have not attended an event there so I do not know how crowded it is but the street is paved.
