A 90-foot ferris wheel being constructed at the corner of East Hargett and Fayetteville streets in downtown Raleigh created excitement Friday morning.
Crews began putting the ride together around 9 a.m. It will take five hours to get the entire ride set up.
The attraction is part of this year's First Night Raleigh celebration, which is taking on a French theme. Tonight on WRAL News, Ken Smith will be taking one of the first rides on the wheel.
Check out these images I shot of how they put this ride together:
