Bandera, Texas (April 2, 2015) - Bandera being recognized as The Cowboy Capital of the World just means it opens the door to more ideas for Bandera to live up to the title. The National Reenactment Guild of America (RGA) has chosen Bandera as a National Competition location for a 2015 Reenactment event. That means every gunfighter, outfitters, living history buff, campsite competitor as well as actresses and actors in the Nation involved with historic reenactment will come to Bandera to be judged.  Mayhem on the Medina will be happening on the banks of the Medina River in Bandera City Park on April 11th and 12th. 
The RGA is an organization of living historians, educators, entertainers and re-enactors dedicated to the preservation and education of the history of America's 19th Century, primarily but not restricted to the American Old West. Because historical truths are sometimes found to be fluid and open to interpretation, every effort is made to insure that members portray their characters or events in a historically correct manner which shall include clothing, utensils, weapons, behavior and speech.  
The event will include historic campsites and just for fun, old fashioned children’s games like sack races,  dominoes, and much more.  There will be old time music, arts and crafts and great food.  Admission is free.
