I tell my kids about this one and for a moment they look at me like PETA is about to burst through the door - but they love the concept: remember the ducking slide?

The year we moved here from up North my Dad took off from work to check the fair on his way home. He didn't realize the fair was segregated and had picked the one day to go when he was the only white person in the crowd it seemed. I read that it was called "colored day" and was on the first day of the fair - Monday.

rhertz: Mrs Pedro - that sounds real familiar. What did the Pie Wagon look like? [Edit: My brother said she later went to Byrd]
