During the Fair, the Broadway street is characterized by the bustling crowds, sizzling turkey legs and funnel cakes and the SkyRide carrying passengers above the jolly chaos of the Fair. Before the SkyRide was built, we used to have a monorail that would take guests not only across Broadway, but around the entire Fairgrounds. This photo was taken back in the 1960s. Things sure looked different… but the Grandstand still stands strong!
