Val Kilmer, who famously played Doc Holliday in the movie "Tombstone," will visit the Arizona Old West town as part of a festival that pays tribute to the gunfighter.

The visit is part of Tombstone Lions Club and Tombstone Mustachery's first Doc Holli-Days event taking place Aug. 12 and 13.

In the movie, the character is a dentist known for his part in the legendary shootout at O.K. Corral. Tombstone Mustachery co-owner Sherry Rudd says the event is dedicated to all things Doc Holliday.
