Crowded Day Routine at Expo 67

On this day in 1967, the attendance at Expo 67 was 315,490 visitors!

From Expo Inside Out, what to do at Expo during especially crowded days:

"When there are more than 250,000 people on the Expo site, it's crowded. And on holiday weekends, especially, that's the way it is. So remember:

If you must see a pavilion, head for it, line up, and stay in line. Wandering from line-up to line-up is frustrating and pointless.

Canada, Ontario, India, Mexico, the African Nations, and the U.S.S.R. are best-bet national pavilions. They can absorb large crowds, and their line-ups move fast.

Man the Provider and Man the Producer are best-bet theme pavilions, for the same reasons.

Taking a walk... through parks, through the sculpture garden, or around the site, with an eye to the architecture, is not settling for second best. Much of Expo's atmosphere, beauty, and interest is on the outside, and it helps to bear that in mind.

Don't try restaurants - especially the big, posh ones, at regular meal hours. Bring a lunch.

Wait until evening to take the minirail."
