The 1982 World’s Fair, You’ve Got to Be There


My Mother would go on at length about how amazing the World’s Fair she went to in New York was when she was younger. So when the World’s Fair returned and would be in Knoxville in 1982, we decided that we would go. Sadly as we closed in on planning for the trip, out car started having problems and the trip never happened. We would get new car and go to EPCOT later on and that always felt World Fair-like to me, but not being able to go has always been a disappointment.
