The Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel will be lit blue on Thursday, November 18 in recognition of the Los Angeles Memorial for Victims of COVID-19.

The Pacific Wheel will join other LA landmarks in lighting blue in remembrance for those lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 25,000 LA County residents have died due to complications of COVID-19 since the pandemic started over 2 years ago. At the request of LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, buildings and landmarks will shine blue on the weekend of November 18-20 to remember those who passed.

This special lighting event will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 18. The Ferris wheel lights can be seen from dusk until 11:35 PM each evening. Enjoy watching the light program online at www.pacpark.com/live. Learn more about the memorial here: www.lamayor.org/COVIDMemorial

Pacific Park regularly programs the Ferris wheel to display seasonal programing and themed light designs for holidays and special occasions. The Pacific Wheel’s state-of-the-art lighting package was installed in 2016 and can display over 1.6 million different colors and animate patterns and icons in 24 frames per second. The energy efficient LEDs on the face of the Ferris wheel are powered by solar arrays inside Pacific Park. The light programs are curated and designed by Pacific Park staff. Each design is manually animated; some designs can take hours of programming. The aim is to provide fun, high-energy, and sometimes whimsical designs to entertain guests on the Santa Monica Pier and surrounding beaches.
