Welcome to Chicago

Airline passengers landing in Los Angeles on April 1, 1992 were greeted by an 85-foot-long yellow banner on the ground that spelled out, in 20-foot-high red letters, “Welcome to Chicago.”


It was raised above the Hollywood Park race track, about three miles from the airport. Park spokesman Brock Sheridan explained, “It was something we always wanted to do. We thought it would be kind of funny and our new management... thought it would be a great practical joke.”

The sign remained up for two days.
