The 40th Anniversary of Expo 67

2007 marks the 40th anniversary of the Universal Exhibition of 1967.

The city of Montreal has announced a 200 000$ budget to commemorate the event. An official announcement and an interactive new website are scheduled for February 19, 2007.

Expo 67's 30th anniversary in 1997 was great; it was then that I first fell in love with Expo. Local newspapers and television stations had dipped into their archives, bringing forth fab vintage documents pertaining to Expo 67.

I sure hope the same will happen this year.

A great blog called Expo 67 2.0 has been created for the occasion, by a local press agency called l'Évènementiel. The blog's goal is to keep the public up to date on all the festivities surrounding Expo's 40th anniversary.
