Description

This color slide shows two men and a small child riding on horseback 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 background of the images shows a crowd of onlookers. The Appalachian Theater and the Northwestern Bank (later the Boone Town Hall) are also visible.
