Here’s info concerning Ferris Wheel Day, courtesy of


February 14th is the annual observance of National Ferris Wheel Day.  This unofficial national holiday is held on this day to honor the birth of the inventor of the Ferris Wheel, George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr.

Preparations for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition began in earnest in 1891. Director of works for the fair, Daniel H. Burnham laid out the challenge: create a centerpiece to the fair that will rival the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Erected the year before, the Eiffel Tower was quickly becoming a world attraction. Ideas were tossed about, plans presented and plans rejected.

George Washington Gale Ferris was inspired. He contemplated several ideas but it wasn’t until one evening in a Chicago chophouse that he struck on an idea that could fit the challenge. After sketching out the idea on napkins he proceeded to develop his plans.
