A new, solar-powered Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier will open to the public tomorrow night, May 28, with a lighting ceremony. The new Pacific Wheel uses energy-efficient LED bulbs and will feature computer-generated light displays.
The festivities will begin at 8:00 pm with live music, followed by the lighting ceremony and fireworks at 8:30 pm. Guests may ride for free from 9:15 pm to midnight, and Pacific Park will provide free popcorn and cotton candy.
Pacific Park is an amusement park located on the pier, at the end of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica. Click the link for directions and parking.
