Hemisfair Opening Day

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the interesting reading. Could you imagine if that fire had gotten out of hand? People streaming into the park on opening day would see a huge flame atop the Tower and figure it was part of the show ("Wow, look at how they got that flame at the top of the Tower. Very impressive!"). At some point reality would settle in (either as firefighting equipment sped toward the Tower, or as the flames completely overtook the upper portions). While potentially tragic, it probably would have made the Hemisphere much more well-known than it ended up being.

Hey, if that did happen I guess fair alumni would think they added a gas torch at the top like they did in Seattle ;)
