This pink elephant has not moved. It's been in the same spot since the 1960s. It's in front of a Holiday gas station. You can buy pink elephant stickers and magnets inside.

The Pink Elephant! Perhaps one of the best sites to be seen. His glasses are the best. So glad we ran across him. An absolute must for everyone.

My family and I re-opened the Pink elephant gas station and store in May, and really love visiting with people. The elephant has been in our town for about 50 years and has always been a part of our lives. It was my husband's 1st job pumping gas way back when; he grew up just a mile down the road.

The station is a Citgo and has had many names throughout the years. We named the station Andy's Pink Elephant in memory of our infant son, who passed away in 1991 with a heart defect. It is his elephant. We have started a Wall of Fame and are hoping visitors will send in new and old photos of the elephant to put up on the stations walls. People enjoy looking at them and reading the Wall of Fame.

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.
