Cairo Street was a popular destination on the Midway. Visitors could eat Egyptian food and sweets, watch dancers perform, or go on a camel ride. The exhibit included a replica of the famous Temple of Luxor. Throughout the day and evening, Egyptian performers would enact ancient Egyptian ceremonies in the street for visitors to the fair. In one ceremony, an Egyptian couple actually married on the Midway.
