Santa Monica Pier To Light Up For Kobe Bryant

Today, three years ago, Kobe Bryant passed away. In remembrance of the late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, the Santa Monica Pier will be illuminated in purple and gold on Thursday night.

The ‘LA + heart + 24’ and ‘LA + heart + 8’ coupled with displays of gold and purple hues in a variety of patterns and transitions will light up Pacific Park’s 90-foot-tall Ferris wheel.

The day after Kobe Bryant’s birthday, on August 23, Kobe Bryant Day (also known as Black Mamba Day or Mamba Day) recognizes the two jersey numbers he wore throughout his 20-year NBA career. He made NBA history in 2017 by being the first player to have two jersey numbers retired by the same team.

The 40 spokes and two hubs of the ferris wheel, as well as the 174,000 LED lights for the Pacific Wheel, are mounted to the wheel’s framework. The lighting system of the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel has 16.7 million possible color value combinations, and the programming and display software can display images at a frame rate of up to 24 frames per second to show off dynamic, personalized, computer-generated lighting entertainment. The energy savings from the eco-friendly, improved LED lighting are 81 percent greater than those from the majority of the ferris wheel’s conventional incandescent bulbs.
