A midway provided rides and other entertainment; athletic events took place at a specially constructed stadium. The African, Eskimo and Mexican Villages were among the attractions. Some states as well as South and Central American countries had their own buildings. The Electric Tower was illuminated nightly by thousands of colored bulbs and floodlights.
