The Ferris Wheel Turns 125
More than 2,000 miles may separate them, but Chicago’s Navy Pier and Santa Monica Pier are coming together to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the iconic invention that connects them: The Ferris wheel. Designed and constructed by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. for the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the Ferris wheel rolled onto the scene with a grand opening on June 21, 1893.
One hundred and twenty-five years later, Chicago, home of the original Ferris wheel, and Santa Monica, home of the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel, have teamed up to honor the ingenuity and foresight of the late George Washington Gale Ferris Jr.’s creation with a day filled with live entertainment, free wheel rides, brilliant light shows, special appearances by Ferris family members and tributes to other popular products that debuted at the World’s Fair.
