For six months in 1982, the world visited Knoxville's Second Creek valley. The World's Fair attracted more than 11 million visitors to the city. An amusement park was near the mouth of Second Creek and international pavilions filled 70 acres between the river and Western Avenue. It was an impressive change from what had been known as Scuffletown in Knoxville's past.
