The Abraham Lincoln National Railsplitting Festival takes place the weekend after Labor Day in Lincoln, Illinois. There is a pioneer village at the festival where people (and many times families) wear period costumes and demonstrate period crafts. And, there are vendors that handcraft and sell the period costumes - including hats. I used CS6 to isolate the red had, then desaturate and darken the remaining hats on display.
