A Ku Klux Klan Labor Day gathering in rural Arkansas, on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2007. Members and supporting Klan realms from five different states came together for a three-day weekend of racial unity. The gathering included BBQ?s, games, fellowship, an award ceremony and a Klan naturalization. A historical cannon was fired every hour on the hour during daylight hours, until local neighbors complained. Saturday evening closed with a cross lighting ceremony which, according to Klan beliefs, dispels darkness and ignorance. Due to a statewide burn ban, the lighting was done with Christmas tree lights.
