Statue of Pyro the Dragon
Just around the corner from the Eiffel Tower replica in Paris, Texas is this wide-eyed cartoon dragon. "Pyro" is the mascot of the Dragons at Paris Junior College. The Pyro statue was created by Daon Wall, a PJC alum and president of the college's Board of Regents before he passed away in 2001.
Wall contributed another important landmark to the town -- he created the red cowboy hat on top of the Eiffel Tower.
