Upcycled Ferris Wheel Contest!

RoundAbout's neighbor the Wheeler Ferris Wheel had their Grand Re-Opening this last Saturday where ReFuse offered donated materials for guests to compete by making Upcycled Ferris Wheels. All ages participated using materials such as toilet paper rolls, stick pieces, mardi gras beads ect....! Watching cousins, couples, sisters, dad and daughters, and a grandmother/daughter/granddaughter all creating together was inspiring. We met alot of new friends and some old friends came out to visit as well. Local artists like Clarissa Sharp joined us and it seemed like everyone participated and shared even if they were strangers to eachother. The engineering that went into the ferris wheels was great too! So many different designs of how to make the wheel turn. There was a lot of pride that went into figuring it out. We used no templates and answered all the questions of "How do I do it?"s with another question, "How do you think it's done?" No ferris wheel was alike but all were innovative. The Wheeler Ferris Wheel folks were very generous to donate a Season Pass to whichever Upcycled Ferris Wheel got the maximum votes for crowd favorite. During Saturday 3 out of the 22 entered tied for the vote so we've extended the vote to that final 3 for the week. If you'd like to participate and vote for your favorite, go to the ReFuseOKC Facebook Page The winner will be announced next Saturday.
