Description

This color slide shows a group of people gathered around an umbrella-shaded table of wares during the Wagon Train parade in Boone, North Carolina. 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 image appears to show a table of wares being sold to attendees of the parade. Among the people shown is a woman wearing period costume. An opened station wagon can be seen in the background.
