World's Largest Frying Pan

Field review by the editors.

Long Beach, Washington

The self-proclaimed World's Largest Frying Pan in Long Beach is a year-long reminder of the town's annual Razor Clam Festival. It was forged in 1941 by command of the town's chamber of commerce. It's 14 feet long (with handle), 9 feet 6 inches wide, and despite its name and impressive size it is not the World's Largest, having been surpassed in subsequent years by other towns with more ambitious plans and pans.

No longer operational, Long Beach's frying pan serves as a nice photo backdrop for families who couldn't get a decent picture in front of the Alligator Man across the street at Marsh's Free Museum.
