This year, Seattle will mark the anniversary of a pivotal event that brought the world to the city and offered a glimpse of the future. The Century 21 Exposition – better known as the Seattle World’s Fair – celebrates its 60th birthday. The fair attracted nearly 10 million people during its six-month run. It even turned a profit. After the crowds left, the fairgrounds became Seattle Center. Several attractions became icons, including the Space Needle and the Monorail. See who helped make the Seattle World’s Fair possible and how its legacy continues to unfold. Host Mona Lee Locke has these stories and much more from the Space Needle observation area!
