1969 Dogwood Arts Festival

1969 was a big year for Knoxville. That year, the city hosted one of the largest and most successful Dogwood Arts Festivals, attended by politicians, celebrities and sizable crowds. Also that year, Knoxville, Cades Cove and Gatlinburg served as locations for the production of Columbia Pictures "A Walk in the Spring Rain," starring Ingrid Bergman and Anthony Quinn. Local resident Bill Minnich was at both events, shooting away on his 8mm home movie camera.
