New York World's Fair

Volume 23, Issue 3

A study of the flow of attendance shows that 9:30 P. M. is the most popular hour at the Fair. The reason for this is said to be the display at this time of the spectacular Lagoon of Nations show-a new development in open-air spectacles which combines in a symphonic arrangement music, fireworks, flame, colored lights and the play of huge fountains. Attendance at these free shows is estimated at 40,000 on weekdays and 60,000 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
