Description: 1962 SEATTLE WORLD'S FAIR vintage magazine advertisement "America's First World's Fair in Two Decades"
~ Opening April 21 Seattle - A World's Fair doesn't happen every day! When it does, it's an event so extraordinary, a spectacle so fascinating, that it becomes a milestone in the life of a nation. - The Seattle World's Fair will be this kind of great adventure for millions. The first World's Fair to be held in this country for 23 years, it combines all the drama, all the excitement, of the great fairs of history. - And more: All the marvels of the space age will unfold in the massive 11-story Washington State Coliseum. Inside its four-acre span you'll see a "floating city" built entirely of shimmering cubes. Inspect homes of the future ... exciting wall-less schools ... experience push-button weather! - Leave the world behind as you soar past the sun and moon -- two billion light years into space! The Boeing Company's great rocket-ship adventure is inside the Spacearium, one of five exciting buildings housing the United States Government's great $10 million scientific exhibit. There, too, are special "doing-science" laboratories created just for children, where they can experiment under the careful eyes of specially trained World's Fair guides. - Ride the world's first high-speed Monorail as it silently threads its way through downtown Seattle, speeding 10,000 passengers an hour to the Fair terminal. - A sparkling fountain and pool of perfume created by Revlon, Inc., will be the scene of four daily fashion shows, where models will cross the stepping stones to display today's couture and styles of the year 2000, created by America's leading fashion designers. - Great theater, hot jazz, and the world's finest musicians and dancers star each day at the Fair's $20 million entertainment center! See Igor Stravinsky, Van Cliburn, the Ceylon National Dancers, and the Ice Follies ... all on opening night! Then, for 180 days of pleasure and delight, enjoy great performances by such companies as The Old Vic from London, the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Sweden, the Greek National Theatre, top-notch American talent, including Benny Goodman, Nat King Cole, Hal Holbrook, Arthur Godfrey, and Ella Fitzgerald ... and of course, Roy Rogers, who is bringing his show to enchant the young at heart. Ballet ... the world of dance, including the New York City Center Ballet, the Bayanihan Dance Company of the Philippines, and Mexico's Ballet Folklorico, will appear during the six-month-long program assembled from the best the world has ever seen ... or heard! You'll find fun, Fun, FUN on the rollicking Gayway and the voluptuous Show Street! Try specially styled amusement rides imported from abroad, go backstage in luxurious theatre restaurants (it's part of the act!) and don't miss the plush "Paradise International" -- one of Show Street's night clubs featuring gorgeous girls in a "night in Paradise." - Take a just-pretend trip abroad as you stroll the exotic, colorful Boulevards of the World. Beside broad tree-lined malls and plazas, you'll inspect the wares and sample tempting foods of nearly three dozen foreign nations! Visit one of the many unusual restaurants where you can choose authentic international dishes . . . perhaps a Mexican enchilada, a Danish wurst, or mouth-watering French cuisine. You'll relax in sumptuous dining rooms, visit gay outdoor terraces overlooking lighted sculptured fountains, or dine luxuriously 60 stories high, in the revolving restaurant atop the sky-piercing Space Needle! - The Queen of the Fair, the Space Needle, towers above Seattle on three slender legs of lacy steel. High-speed elevators zip you to the top where a viewing mezzanine, snack bar, and dining room afford unsurpassed views of city, lakes and mountains. Hold your breath as you look! From this fabulous spire floats a carillon of sound over the Fair. - It's a huge, glamorous, exciting show set in one of the world's most beautiful modern cities! It's also the dramatic, provocative preview of man's debut into a new Age of Space! - See it all -- in Seattle -- starting April 21st for 6 wonderful months! ~
