Mississippi Streets: 1960s Neshoba County Fair

NESHOBA COUNTY FAIR, Philadelphia, Miss. "Welcome to Happy Hollow"--a part of the nation's most unusual county fair. Many Fair visitors move into their "homes" on Monday and stay until Sunday, bringing their furnishings, bedding, food, etc. with them. Bare-back and harness horse racing. See the colorful Choctaw Indians in original dress. This Fair is unlike any you've seen anywhere else.
