Dear Pier: A Month of Love at the Pier

The NEW month-long program will feature “love notes” to the Pier highlighting peoples' special moments that have happened in this iconic destination. Whether it was a first date watching sunset at the West End, proposing to the love of your life at the Carousel or sharing an ice cream cone with a special friend, we want to hear your story and include it in our art installation. The stories will spread the love and celebrate all the Pier's magical moments.
