Many of the world's greatest achievements in art, architecture, science, technology and culture are unveiled there. The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famous for his design of New York City's Central Park, and constructed under the supervision of Daniel Burnham. The Fair was an engineering marvel.
On opening day, President Grover Cleveland depressed a golden telegraph key which sent the first courses of electricity throughout the Fair powering fountains, machines, turbines, electric railways and thousands of lights. It was the first use of electricity on such a massive scale.
In addition, fairgoers enjoy the Midway Plaisance where a one-mile boulevard of fun offers guilty pleasures such as belly dancing, street fighting, camel riding and beer. Nearly 28 million visit the "White City," which inspires future innovators like Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Frank Lloyd Wright, and debuts the Ferris Wheel and Cracker Jack(R).
Narrator Gene Wilder is famous for such movies as Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. "We selected Gene as narrator because of his unique ability to bring out both the dramatic and comic elements in the Fair," said Bussler.
Wow, so do you have the same views? Pretty ignorant. If you still have the same stance I must say it was a FAIR on American soil. We don't want your Neo-Communist utopia of poverty and oppression, sorry.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
