Next week, visitors to Navy Pier will be able to pay tribute to a special invention. On June 21, Navy Pier will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Ferris Wheel.
"It's exciting to be celebrating the anniversary and to be teaming up with Santa Monica Pier for this," said Payal Patel, spokeswoman for Navy Pier. "We decided to come together to have a summer celebration from the West Coast to the Midwest."
Just as Navy Pier has its Centennial Wheel, Santa Monica Pier in California has a solar-polared Ferris Wheel as one of its prime attractions.
