Pacific Park’s Ferris Wheel On Santa Monica Pier To Go Dark During “Earth Hour”:

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier joins Earth Hour in “Uniting People To Protect The Planet” with a one-hour, lights out on the world-famous Ferris wheel, except for the wheel rim safety lighting, at 8:30 pm this Saturday, March 23.

In 2013, Earth Hour’s “I Will If You Will” concept invites individuals and organizations to challenge others to an ongoing environmental commitment beyond the hour.

According to the organization, Earth Hour began in one city in 2007 and by 2012 involved hundreds of millions of people in 152 countries across every continent, receiving reports as ‘the world’s largest campaign for the planet.’

 “Pacific Park has made an ongoing commitment to participate in Earth Hour each year to help raise environmental awareness,” says Jeff Klocke, Vice President of Marketing and Administration at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Pacific Park strives to be a leader locally and throughout the industry for green initiatives. We’ve introduced the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel and the world’s only wind-powered amusement park game, which are just two of many ways we’ve tried to make a positive environmental impact in our community.”

The Pacific Wheel is the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel featuring 160,000 energy-efficient LED lights that present dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment each evening.

The eco-friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 75 percent greater energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.
