There is some cool events taking place in Virginia City this weekend. June 19-21 Virginia City will be stepping back in time to the Grand Victoria Ball of 1864. Also living history will be taking place this weekend. This sounds like a lot of fun, going to Virginia City and seeing people dress up like the good old days on 1864. See men in fancy suits and women dressed up in corseted dresses. Don’t forget about the candy store, which is my favorite part about Virginia City. How could you not love the candy store, you get to see them make homemade taffy and they have homemade fudge in an assortment of flavors. A fun family activity is taking old time photos at Old Times Photos.
