Spokane World's Fair aerial photo

They are still around but not as hyped or attended as they were in their hayday. I attended Expo '86 in Vancouver & it seemed pretty big to me but I wasn't around to witness the great expositions of the past. Expo '05 was in Aichi, Japan and I guess Toronto is pushing for Expo 2015.

The legacy of the World's Fairs is huge to the NW. Spokane has Riverfront Park, Seattle has Seattle Center, Space Needle, & monorail, & Vancouver cleaned up the False Creek area which has spurred the giant condo boom & downtown renaissance there.
