The Ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier will be Dodger blue as a salute to the home team’s victory during the 2020 Major league Baseball World Series.
On Tuesday night, the LA Dodgers defeated the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 6 of the World Series held in Arlington, TX. This is the 7th Major League Baseball title for the Dodgers and first since 1988.
Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier lit the Ferris wheel in blue during the World Series displaying messages like “Go Dodgers”. Following the win, the wheel read “Dodgers Win”. The Wheel will remain dodger blue in a salute to the championship win through Wednesday night.
The Ferris wheel lights can be seen from dusk until 11:30 PM each evening. Enjoy watching the light program online at www.pacpark.com/live.
Special Lighting of the Pacific Wheel for The LA Dodgers
Dusk to midnight (around 6:00 PM)
Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier
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.
The Dodger’s light program has been running intermittently during the Word Series and featured during the games’ broadcast on Fox.
