Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier will highlight Veterans Day with a Pacific Wheel Ferris wheel lighting program of red, white and blue colors and patterns including 130-feet tall icons of the American flag and all five armed services’ seals.
The Santa Monica Pier is now open 24 hours. However, Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier’s rides and attractions, including the Pacific Wheel and West Coaster, remain closed until further notice.
The LED salute on the ferris wheel will take place on Wednesday, November 11 from Sunset (about 4:52 p.m.) to Midnight.
The Pacific Wheel is the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel featuring 174,000 LED lights that are mounted on the Ferris wheel’s 40 spokes and two hubs. The Ferris wheel’s lighting system features 16.7 million color value combinations to display dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment. The eco-friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 81 percent greater energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.
