Organizers and local historians like Ruth Atkins, president of the Lake Elsinore Historical Society, hope this will be a rebirth of the annual event that dates back decades but had disappeared for several years.
"This is something that never should have been stopped. This is a great event," Atkins said from under a canopy on a hot Saturday morning as Frontier Days visitors passed by.
Frontier Days continues from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at Alberhill Ranch Park, along Lake Street, about two miles west of Interstate 15.
"As the town has grown, I think people no longer really know just how much history we have here in Lake Elsinore and throughout Southwest Riverside County," she said.
"That's the stuff with which we are made," Atkins continued. "There is a real substance to the history here, it's not just a fly-by-night thing.
"People should realize there is a lot more here than just nice housing and some of the recreational activities available to them," she said.
At future Frontier Days, Atkins hopes the Historical Society will be more involved and help educate those who come to the event about the area's deep history.
Frontier Days is an event which dates back to at least the 1970s and was, for many years, held at the old rodeo grounds on Franklin Street. In the late 1980s, the event included a rodeo and moved to Temecula in 1990 where it continued for a few years.
This year was the right time to bring it back, Atkins and others said, because 2008 marks the 120-year anniversary of Lake Elsinore's incorporation as a city.

"The tours will each last about an hour and a half," said Ruth Atkins, president of the Lake Elsinore Historical Society.
Key stopping places will be businesses along Main Street, Lake Elsinore City Hall, the old Elsinore Theater, the Tank House, the Santa Fe Depot, Pioneer Lumber, The Wreck, and others, Atkins explained.
"The city has such a rich history," she said, adding that more walks are being planned.
