Visitor Tips and News About Pinkie the Pink Elephant
Good News! A new owner came in and bought the gas station and LOVES the elephant so much she is giving away pink elephant bumper and window stickers to those who come by to see it! She is asking that you send in a photo of you and the elephant so she can line the walls of the place with photos! Well worth the stop and if you can, fill up the tank, too.[Leatta Perdue, 05/31/2010]
We went to visit the Pink Elephant on 3/6/10. He is still standing, but badly covered with graffiti and stickers. The Citgo station he is next to appears to be shut down and the land is for sale.[Jana, 03/16/2010]
I saw the Pink Elephant, but instead of shades, he had glasses without the lenses. It was right next to the Citgo station. He was awesome!
I bought key chain for $1.99 and a magnet for $1.19![Karen F, 08/23/2008]
He is still there. We stumbled upon him on Memorial Day Weekend. Unfortunately it is in need of a good paint job. The gas station attendant didn't seem to care about it at all, and seemed rather annoyed by people's interest.[Merlin, 06/15/2008]
I am glad to see others in as much love with this elephant as I am. I grew up in Dane county but traveled north at least once a month my entire life. Seeing the elephant meant an exciting weekend ahead, or that we were almost home. When I got married this summer, we had our reception at the new hotel right by the elephant, and I knew we had to stop for pictures. I don't know if anyone else has done it, but this is our favorite picture from the wedding.[Jodie Lasco, 11/03/2007]
