Description

A color slide showing several horses and covered wagons of different sizes in the Wagon Train parade down King Street in Boone, NC, with onlookers watching from the background. The Wagon Train, which traveled over multiple days from Wilkes County to Boone, began as a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of North Carolina in 1963. The event would be held every summer until 1974. The storefront of the Northwestern Bank (housing the Boone's Town Hall as of 2019) is visible in the background, as is the Appalachian Theatre.
