Giant Neon Bowling Pin

Gone... for now this was taken down due to corrosion and need of repainting. The landowners and City Council have promised that it will return.

Letters didn't rotate when I was there, but the sign is still looking great!

This bowling alley has just been sold to land developers and is already being torn down. No word as to whether the sign will remain.

I stopped to take some daytime photos of the giant bowling pin. The letters in the middle of the pin rotate in sync, displaying the message, "classic - bowling." Or, they DID rotate; the last two times I've been by, both during the day, they were not moving. I hope it's just a temporary glitch!

On State Street near the highway 80 overpass is a huge neon sign shaped like a bowling pin advertising "classic bowling." We weren't sure what made bowling classic or not, but there are 54 lanes for you to research next time you visit. There is also a coffee shop.
