Giant Bob Ross

For about 20 years a giant SpongeBob Squarepants has been a landmark at Dyson Building Supply in Great Mills. He stands on a hill next to the business, and has changed his outfits for various holidays and special occasions over time.

Shortly after the death of painter Bob Ross, SpongeBob was revamped to be a giant Bob Ross, and some happy trees were even added.

[Amy Outlaw, 07/06/2021]

SpongeBob's latest makeover debuted in October 2020. Bob Ross died in 1995, but reruns of his show make it seem like he's never left us.
