Description

A color slide showing two men on horseback during the Wagon Train Parade down King Street in Boone. 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. Burgess Furniture (more recently Strand Jewelry and Beads) and Yogi's Submarine and Sandwich Shop (more recently Wolfie's Deli) are visible in the background.
