This celebration takes place every October in Willcox, Arizona, Rex Allen's birthplace. This year will mark the 70th anniversary of the event.

I don't believe these medals, which are slightly larger than silver dollar sized, have been struck or distributed for at least a few decades now.

Very nice!

He always makes me think about the Carousel of Progress at Walt Disney World. He was the original voice of the father, but got a cameo as the grandfather when they did a refresh in the 90s (before he passed away).

There's a great big beautiful tomorrow.

Rex Allen made some interesting films in the 1950's.

His 1950 film "Under Mexicali Stars" was about the smuggling of Mexican 50 peso Centenario gold coins and featured Rex hanging from the bottom of a helicopter.

Rex holds a Mexican 50 peso coin for the camera:
