Organizations recognize Balboa Park’s centennial anniversary with new exhibits
It all began with the expansion of the Panama Canal — and a desire to capitalize on its entry into San Diego.
As the venerable Balboa Park celebrates the 100 mark since the momentous occasion, several local organizations are pausing and reflecting on the milestone for a landmark that initially did not have a long-term prognosis in the community.
Beginning this Saturday, Jan. 31, the San Diego History Center (SDHC) will kick off its latest exhibit, “San Diego Invites the World: The 1915 Expo.” The 14-month display will run through the end of March 2016.
