At Last, Some Media Attention
WATE-TV and Gene Patterson seem to be aware of the pending anniversary:
In just a few weeks, Knoxville will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the start of the Knoxville International Energy Exposition. You may remember it as the 1982 World’s Fair.
I’m interested in your stories about the Fair. I may use them in some upcoming stories on the anniversary. Think about it.. Write in…
It’s interesting he mentions that Knoxville will soon be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the World’s Fair. Does he mean the City of Knoxville has something planned? Or Knoxvillians in general, and by extension the media, will be the ones actually doing the commemorating?
A quick scan of the Knoxville City Government website doesn’t mention any kind of celebration or commemoration pending, and the events calendar lists nothing for May 1st except an unrelated event on Market Square and a golf tournament….
