This Was A Big Event!

An estimated 25,000 people attended this Sunday afternoon event in Salisbury in the winter of 1959. It wasn't an entertainment or sporting event, nor a religious, or political event.  There was nothing for sale nor items brought in for exhibit purposes. What was the attraction?

Any guesses?
