Sesquicentennial Exposition

The 1926 Sesqui-Centennial International Exposition was a world's fair hosted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and the 50th Anniversary of the 1876 Centennial Exposition. The Liberty Bell was the symbol of the exposition, an 80 foot replica, covered in 26,000 light bulbs, was constructed at the gateway to the expo. The fair drew a much smaller crowd than anticipated (about 10 million people).
