Santa Monica Pier Centennial
They're celebrating the Santa Monica Pier's 100th birthday Wednesday, September 9th. Beginning at 6 there will be music (including Dick Dale), a 100 foot cake, and the first fireworks show in 18 years. Let's get out there and celebrate our beautiful pier and all it's history.
When I think of the pier I think of my dad taking me their to ride bumper cars and play in the arcade, or curled up in a sleeping bag watching fireworks when I was a teenager(never you mind with who), or seeing it in movies like The Sting. I love my old pier and I plan to be there to say Happy Birthday!!!
