National Tobacco Festival in South Boston, Virginia. Women in a tobacco field, including the festival queen wearing a crown and assisting with tobacco picking. Men and women dressed in colorful costumes. A man dressed in native American Indian regalia smokes a pipe. Another man dressed in fancy robes (perhaps the look of an early settler) smokes the pipe and coughs. A parade to mark the National Tobacco Festival runs down Main Street in the town of South Boston, Virginia. Decorated floats with a woman dressed as a queen on a decorated float. Marquee on the Princess Theater on Main Street advertises the move "Suzy" starring Jean Harlow and Cary Grant. The floats drive past as parade attendees look on.
