WAUSAU (WAOW) -

The Wausau Center is set to celebrate 30 years in business.

The downtown mall opened August 3, 1983.

 An estimated 15,000 gathered outside the mall doors for the opening ceremony.

Newsline 9 aired the event in a live broadcast.

Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple says the mall is the key to downtown Wausau.

"It is critical piece of our downtown,we are glad it's in our downtown and has been the key to the success of our downtown,"  says Tipple.

He adds that the mall provided the foundation for other developments like the Dudley Tower, 400 Block, Jefferson Street Inn and Riverside Plaza.

Friday a ceremony takes place in the Wausau Center at noon to mark the 30th anniversary.

The public is invited.
