On Saturday, the lights of the world-famous Ferris wheel at Pacific Park will be shut off for one hour at 8:30 p.m., with the exception of the wheel rim safety lighting, in observance of Earth Hour.

The Santa Monica Pier attraction is the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel, and will be joining other landmarks such as Big Ben in London, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, plus many others in this year’s Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is a yearly initiative that involves turning off appliances, electronics and the like for a period of one hour in order to promote green living.
