Who remembers these things?

This one isn't about CFB per se, but a couple significant moments in UT FB history happened while this was going on right next door...

I remember being up there on a gameday and begging my parents to ride the giant ferris wheel again and again just so I could glimpse down into Neyland when I reached the top.

Given the theme of the fair, using electric power?

All men dream: but not equally. Those who
Dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the
Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it
Possible. This I did.
—T. E. Lawrence,
The Seven Pillars of Wisdom

I rode a horse and buggy to the World's Fair.  Literally.

I remember Leonard's Losers very well, barely recall the 1982 World's Fair commercial.  Don't recall the TBS one at all, but I didn't have cable back then, being a college student.
