SEATTLE (AP) — The Space Needle will be painted “Galaxy Gold” for its 60th anniversary, the original color when the Seattle landmark debuted at the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962.
The 605-foot tower got a fresh coat of gold for its 50th anniversary, with the first strokes of paint applied by a select three people involved with either the fair or the Needle’s construction and operations. This time around, the Needle is holding a contest for five winners to help paint the sloped roof, The Seattle Times reported.
