The Argonaut and the Pacific Park Website report that the Pier’s all-new Pacific Wheel will have its birthday bash this Wednesday evening, May 28. Live music from the Surf City Allstars will begin at 8 p.m. At 8:30, there will be a lighting ceremony for the new Wheel. Local dignitaries and business leaders, including Santa Monica Mayor Herb Katz, are scheduled to attend. The lighting will be accompanied by a “Close Proximity Pyrotechnics” show by the renowned Pyro Spectaculars by Souza, meaning that you will be able to stand underneath the fireworks without being burned by annoying flammable materials.
From 9:15 p.m. until midnight, all guests may ride the Wheel for free. Pacific Park will also provide free popcorn and cotton candy.
This promises to be a really fun event to mark the return of one of our most famous Los Angeles area landmarks.
