This does not happen very often. So, in observance of the only time in the next hundred years that the world celebrates 11-11-11, Navy Pier is offering special deals on Veterans Day, November 11, 2011.
The specials at Navy Pier include FREE Ferris wheel rides, specially discounted parking, and dozens of other discounts on Friday, November 11, 2011. Since this unique date also marks this year’s Veterans Day holiday, Navy Pier also will offer special discounts just for military personnel in uniform and veterans with military ID.
Navy Pier will observe this special day in a big way by “going to 11!” (That’s a catchphrase
from the “mockumentary” film, “This is Spinal Tap.”) . On 11-11-11, Navy Pier will stay open until 11:00 p.m., offer FREE ferris wheel rides, $11 discounted parking for all and FREE parking for veterans and active military and dozens of other discounts and special offers.
Three Navy Pier restaurants will hand out tickets to a special 11:11 p.m. showing of the
