In 1974, Spokane played host to the World Exposition, known more commonly as Expo ’74. It was something ahead of its time; “the first environmentally themed world’s fair.” Today the Expo ’74 location, the city’s expansive and beautiful Riverfront Park, remains a lasting tribute. And then there’s the iconic World’s Fair Pavilion that stood at the center of it all, which still stands in its skeletal form.
The hometown-proud folks at No-Li Brewhouse in Spokane have constructed a tribute to the iconic World’s Fair Pavilion inside the brewery and pub in the form of a large chandelier. “No-Li Brewhouse celebrates the international and home state icon of the 1974 Expo World’s Fair Pavilion,” says a press release from the company. “No-Li hoisted an identical 1/20 sized replica of the World’s Fair Pavilion to the ceiling today, launching a community celebration!”
“Created by Cody Rodenbough, Lincoln Build Works, the No-Li Pavilion Chandelier is a year-long imaginative project. The Pavilion is a beautiful, hand-made art piece and an identical replica to the Expo ’74 Pavilion; measuring up at 15 ft. in diameter, 8.5 ft. tall, 325 lb.’s and features 50 cables.”
“Join us for a pint underneath the No-Li Chandelier Pavilion and celebrate where you were Born & Raised!”
