TOMBSTONE, Ariz. (AP) — Dennis Quaid and Val Kilmer are heading back to the Wild West.

The actors, who both portrayed gunslinger Doc Holliday on screen, will take part this weekend in the town of Tombstone’s annual “Doc Holli-Days” event.

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.

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

Fans can pay to meet either actor.

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