PACIFIC PARK VALENTINE’S DAY CONTEST SUBMISSIONS…WHO SHOULD WIN?
Megha Roy: It’s going to be throwback V-day this year for us! Can’t wait to inhale a root beer float with the world famous pier burger and some curly fries. Then on to the arcade to kick my husbands’ butt at air hockey…maybe even enter the tornado booth for fun pictures!! To end the evening, we will enjoy the romantic pacific wheel. BLISS!
Caroline Cisneros: I would kiss my hubby at the top of the Pacific Wheel. After all, February 14th will be our 10th wedding anniversary!!
Sylvia Luis: With the love of my life my baby Josh Bachrach wouldn’t want to be with anyone else but him
Byron Jung: Celebrating our engagement anniversary strolling the pier, eating funnel cake and enjoying the sunset just a walk away from where I proposed 13 years ago (She said yes!).
Great American Deals Santa Monica – Brentwood: Ferris wheel ride during an amazing Santa Monica bay sunset
Abigail Williams: Just enjoying the company of my hubby and the exciting atmosphere of Pacific Park!
Joanne Schofield: We would play game after game and try and win as much goodies as we can and then go on rides over and over!! Gotta make the most of an unlimited wristband
Sandra Quintana: We’d explore every part of the park. My son and I have never been and I’m extremely fortunate to have him for Valentine’s Day this year. We’ve been wanting to go but haven’t been able to. My lil Valentine would go crazy
Monicaandrudy: I would love to spend vday with my husband at pacific park. Not doing much just being with him there would be perfect. And it’s our 4 yr anniversary this month. But if we can get on the rides that would be awesome too. And maybe dinner on the pier. And I would love for him to win me a stuff animal!
Socalpavement: I would spend it with a ride on the Ferris Wheel with my husband and daughters then take a stroll on that beautiful beach!!
Gabbytm13: I would take my 2 kids and make it a family Valentine’s Day…what better way to celebrate the day is there?
Pattyb805: I love PacPark! We’ve been there before with our oldest son but since we didn’t do anything for our 4 year anniversary that just passed on January 30th, we would definitely go by ourselves this time! We have rode the rides at daytime but this time I would want to go to not rush and first eat when we get there, then walk around play different games see if we can win prizes! Last time my bf won two USC flags from winning the balloon pop race maybe this next time I can win something lol at night time I would like to ride the roller coaster and the Ferris wheel with him. I bet the view looks more awesome at night! I love the dragon ride too gives you a rush!! So we would definitely play and ride the games until we’ve had enough and call it a night!!
Gremilien: I was going to draw up this imaginary fantasy of a seemingly perfect day at Pac Park, but I realized it has already happened. I had just met her and we decided to spend the day in Santa Monica. We did a bit of shopping and then walked over towards the pier. We got to the end and sat on a bench and just chatted away an hour or two and caught a gorgeous sunset over the water. A homeless woman approached and told me that I was lucky to be in the company of a beautiful young lady and asked if I had any money to spare. Only having a debit card, I asked her if she was hungry and ended up getting her a chicken finger meal. As she departed, the two of us agreed that we should take a ride on the Ferris wheel, but it would have to be another time, because I needed to get back to base and head out for a deployment. When I return, I plan on reliving that day and getting that ride in before I go….
