Pink and Gray Elephants

Quick detour on our travels north on 95. They are located in front of the yellow fireworks building. The elephants are huge and now have a shelter built over them.

We went to check these elephants out on our road trip and they were not there!

The two elephants were recently moved from the parking lot of Papa Joe's Fireworks to the parking lot of Crazy Joe's Fireworks, also in Hardeeville.

Saw Thelma and Louise on 2/24/2021. They are right off I-95 at the fireworks and fruitcake souvenir shop.

Great find -- I think my dog has a crush on Thelma.

Papa Joe's Elephants

The elephants that you have described have the wrong names... they are Big Al and Lizzy! I have worked here for over 20 years. They used to wear sunglasses but they broke too often, so the owner removed them.
