Today the Seattle Center Monorail turns 55 years old. To celebrate, the Monorail is getting a birthday bash complete today, Friday March 24th, from noon to 2pm. Festivities include a birthday card you can sign and KuKuRuZa popcorn and Top Pot Doughuts.
Plus, the first 200 people to arrive at the free celebration will get special freebies including vintage t-shirts, World’s Fair memorabilia, keychains, posters ,and more.
There are also three free tours of the monorail system that include a behind-the-scenes look at the Monorail maintenance facility. These tours are almost all sold out – there are six spots left as of 6:30am this morning for the 12:30 tour, so the early birds will catch the worm on this one! Register here to grab your spot.
Happy Birthday, Monorail!
