Charlotte Frontier Days
This six-day festival, held in Charlotte each
September, recreates the Old West with horse-drawn wagons, a
Frontier Saloon and Dance Hall party, a Las Vegas night, and the
Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association's World Championship Rodeo.
A pageant for Frontier Days Queen kicks off the event, which also
includes a grand parade, a large arts and crafts fair, a flea
market, live music, and fireworks. Held since 1971, it is
documented in a videotape, historical text, 21 color photographs,
promotional materials, and souvenir items.
