The Charlotte News, 5/22/1908, p. 4:
LIVELY CELEBRATION IN PROGRESS AT DILWORTH
Firemen’s Drill Will be Repeated This Evening at 10 O’Clock—The Midway is Unusually Good and Attractive—Some of the Shows.
With clear weather tonight the celebration at Latta Park will surpass that of any other night this week. Rain and damp weather during the first few days cast a damper on the crowd and disappointed the managers, but the crowd in attendance last night was more encouraging and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves to the fullest extent.
