Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier will convert the world-famous Ferris wheel lights “green” with a variety of patterns and colors in support of Earth Day on Monday, April 22.

The Ferris wheel light show will run from sunset (about 7:30 pm) to 12 am.

Pacific Park is committed to being a leader in its industry for green initiatives.

This dedication is evident in the air by the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel among a variety of other business greening initiatives.

The eco-friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 75 percent greater

energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.

Pacific Park was awarded Excellence in Stewardship of the Natural Environment at the 15th annual Sustainable Quality Awards presented by the City of Santa Monica, the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and the nonprofit Sustainable Works.
