Riverfront Park

If Seattle is the straight-A prom king quarterback of the Foosball team at Washington State High, then Spokane is the little brother who resents the comparison. It's also the smallest city to ever hold a World's Fair, and not because it had something to prove or anything. But if you're thinking about marrying Seattle, just know that he'll never be faithful to you the way that Spokane would be.

Much like the first post of this thread explored the 1962 World's Fair via Seattle Center, this post will explore Expo '74 through Spokane's Riverfront Park.

How Dare You!

The 4th Indiana Jones film was an abomination!

The 3rd film was the 2nd best in the series.

Woo! My gambit worked!

Hopefully, the Disney parks will take the opportunity this downtime affords to add Shia LaBeouf into their Indiana Jones rides!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I came here to kill Nazis and kick Shia LaBeouf's ass up and down the street. I'm fresh out of Nazis, and I have 1.3 miles of street left with Shia LeBeouf's ass written all over it.

I think that Spokane should incorporate Niagara Falls' recycling mascot: Totes McGoats...

"Totes McGoats may scare your kids into recycling!"
