Canned Pea Carnival
Something you don't see much any more: The Canned Pea Carnival.
There really was a Canned Pea Carnival from October 20 to November 15 in the early 1940s, sponsored by the Canned Pea Marketing Institute. According to a trade magazine called The Progressive Grocer in 1940, the Institute wanted "to move 23,000,000 cases of canned peas."
