What if, instead of checking out the latest tech and gadgets instantly on your smart phone to learn about the newest innovations, you had to wait years for the fair to come into town? For 150 years, that's exactly how the world functioned. Do you know how people found out about x-rays, belgian waffles, alternating currents, clothing zippers, and ice cream? The local fair. In fact, you know more about this occurance than you think. The Seattle Space Needle, Eiffel Tower, Treasure Island (In San Francisco), the German Pavilion in Berlin, and the Big Globe in Queens NY.
Yup. All due to fairs.
