Ferris Wheel Day February 14th History and Photo #FerrisWheelDay – Happy Ferris Wheel Day images and download free pictures. George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. a civil engineer, made the first Ferris Wheel at the World’s Colombian Exhibition in Chicago in 1893.
The purpose of this day is obvious… to celebrate the birthday of this great inventor and to enjoy his invention. The trouble is, there aren’t many carnivals, amusement parks or fairgrounds operating in mid-February in North America. You may have to settle with enjoying old photos of trips to a fair or amusement park.
Origin of Ferris Wheel Day:
Ferris Wheel Day commemorates the birthday of George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr., the creator of the first Ferris Wheel.
Austria, a country in love with their Ferris Wheels, also claims to have created this day. Their claim is that this date was chosen because in Austria this is historically the most weather friendly day of the year.
