Description

This color slide shows draft horses pulling a covered wagon in the Wagon Train parade through West King Street. 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. Yogi's Submarine and Sandwich Shop and the Flowers Photo Shop are visible in the background. The businesses were housed in the Qualls Library Building (left) and the Qualls Block (right), recently home to Wolfie's Deli and A Piece of the Past Antiques, respectively.
