100th Anniversary of the Panama-Pacific Int’l Exposition (PPIE)
Celebrate the final night of the Ferry Building lit up with the numerals “1915” in honor of the centennial of the 100th anniversary of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. The lights will go out on December 4, 2015, the same day the fair closed a century ago, and the Ferry Building will be restored to its 21st Century appearance.
Come out for a fun ceremonial salute to ‘closing day’ on the Embarcadero in front of the Ferry Building. There will be wonderful souvenirs to the first 500 attendees, music, a tribute to Lincoln Beachey, CC Moore and Sunny Jim Rolph, and surprises galore. Vintage attire is encouraged.
Program is 4:15 – 5:15 pm. Get there early.
How to Experience: See the Ferry Building’s illuminated “1915” numerals from the Embarcadero sidewalk, or cross the street into the median area.
