VISITORS eager to be the first on the new Grand Pier are expected to queue overnight tonight (Fri).
People are speculating on the attraction’s Facebook page that visitors will be lining up from the early hours in a bid to be among the first on the pier.
A spokeswoman urged people to bring weather-proof clothing, adding the pier can hold 6,700 at a time.
North Somerset Council is also preparing for the influx of people to the town.
It is opening many facilities closed during the winter months such as seafront toilets and will have Weston welcomers on hand to help.
The £51million seafront landmark is set to open on tomorrow at 10am, following a massive rebuild project.
