The historic mining town is the site of the infamous 1881 shootout involving Holliday and Wyatt Earp. It remains a popular tourist attraction with gunfight reenactments occurring almost daily.

According to the event’s website, Quaid will serve as parade grand marshal Saturday. His band, Dennis Quaid and the Sharks, will be the night’s entertainment and an after party will follow.

Kilmer, who is making a return visit to the festivities, will be on hand both days.

In addition to meet and greet events with the actors, there’s a Doc look-a-like contest and a Tombstone movie trivia contest.

Kilmer played Holliday in 1993’s “Tombstone.” Quaid took on the role in “Wyatt Earp” in 1994.
