And Seattle Center's Facebook posts = Bonus News!
Our 50th anniversary is this Saturday, April 21 we’re going retro in more ways than our Galaxy Gold roof. We’re opening the doors early (7:30 a.m.) and offering $1 admission, the original price in ‘62, while supplies last. Tickets will be good for a 1-hr time block. Supplies are limited and tickets will sell out so come early to secure admission and stick around for our ‘60s DJ, retro-souvenirs, and photo opportunities with “Elvis.” For a small donation visitors can also enjoy a special Space Needle 50th Anniversary donut, created by Mighty-O Donuts. Come celebrate with us!
Cool huh?!! But wait, there's more!
BTW: Did we mention that if you park in Seattle Center parking lots before 10am this Saturday, April 21st you'll get to park for free all day? http://seattlecenter.com/transportation/parking/
