YouTube Find: 1982 World’s Fair

One of the things I enjoy about the Internet is the ability to see video I would not otherwise be able to see. YouTube is a treasure trove in that regard.
Here’s a couple clips on the 1982 World’s Fair. I lived in Knoxville then, but I only attended the Fair a couple times and don’t remember the actual fairgrounds very vividly. However, I do remember all the hype it generated and the significant impact it had on the city for over a decade.
Watching this funny-looking early 80s stuff makes me feel old.
A segment produced while the Fair was still being constructed:
