LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)-A throwback to the frontier days and the special skills of the pioneers is the focus of a weekend event in Hawkins.

Wearing period 1800's costumes, competitors gathered for the annual knife and tomahawk throw at Hawkins. The two day event features target throws on a points system, with trophies awarded to top marksmen. There are men, women, and children's divisions.

The event continues at Hawkins City Park all day tomorrow.
