The Giant Santa statue is really tall, and right off the road.

Evansville Santa

The 35-foot-tall Santa that was fixed now stands on my property, Peckenpaugh Plumbing, Inc. There is parking and a concrete walkway right up to and around Santa. Everyone is welcome to stop by, day or night, for a picture.

Santa Statue

The statue of Santa once stood at the intersection of I-64 and Indiana 41S and was removed several years ago. He's been given an overhaul and is looking good. He's now just off Indiana 41S south of the Vanderburgh Co. Fairgrounds. It's good to see the Jolly Old Elf back.
