Fans of “Gunsmoke” can travel back to the glory days of the classic TV western during a 55th anniversary celebration opening Friday in Dodge City.

The two-day event will feature speakers associated with the long-running CBS show. There will also be a Western-dress banquet and showings of special “Gunsmoke” episodes.

The celebration is organized by the nonprofit Dodge City Trail of Fame Inc. and takes place at the Dodge House Hotel and Convention Center on Wyatt Earp Boulevard.

Trail of Fame president Jim Johnson told the Dodge City Daily Globe he was looking forward to meeting some of the writers and actors linked to the show. Johnson says the event is a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

“Gunsmoke” was set in Dodge City and ran on TV from 1955 through 1975
