San Francisco's Celebration of the States Centennial in 1950

How many old timers remember or attended the State Centennial in 1950 held in a glade on the southern end of the Presidio, directly behind Julius Kahn Playground? I was only 13 years old but remember it well. There was a 'Historical Cavalcade' called 'California's Fabulous Century'. There were 8 performances in all in October of that year. Lot's of depictions of 100 years of history including horses, Indians, covered wagons etc.
