National Orange Show Events Center
When The National Orange Show Events Center held it first exhibition in 1889, it was predictably a citrus show. That's not to say that attendees weren't impressed. At that point, oranges were a fairly new phenomenon—the Washington Navel orange had only arrived in the San Bernadino area about 15 years prior—and the show piqued public interest to such an extent that it ran profitably for eleven days.
Since that first success, the center has grown substantially, partially because its original building burned down and was replaced with a more expansive one. The new facilities can now accommodate shows of hot new fruits—or anything else, for that matter—in 150,000 square feet of exhibit space. There's also a quarter-mile speedway for car races, and a satellite off-track wagering center, where visitors bet on horse races.
