PAN AMERICAN
HIGHWAY GARDENS

This large garden area, one of the few pavilions that are sponsored by the Fair itself, honors the completion of the Inter-American Highway, the common artery for seven countries from Mexico to Panama, which opened in April 1963. The tropical plantings in the gardens are of kinds found in the jungles and mountains through which the great highway runs. Eastman Kodak has donated 12 life-size pictures of highway scenes.

* Admission: free.
