Carrollton Pilgrimage, Oct. 5-6, 2018

If you’re looking for something to do now that the weather is . . . well, fall-like is too optimistic, but at least it’s not as summerlike as it has been . . . then plan to attend the Carrollton Pilgrimage and Pioneer Day this Friday or Saturday, October 5 and 6.

  1. This will be an especially interesting Pilgrimage for Carrollton, as they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of “The Reivers,” which filmed there for about a month in 1968. Even bringing back that gorgeous yellow 1904 Winton Flyer, which has been in a museum somewhere for the last half-century. When the movie folks came looking for a town that could be Faulkner’s “Jefferson,” all they had to do was cover up Carrollton’s lone gas station with a livery stable facade and put some dirt down on the streets. Magic.
