The Blue Hippo

There used to be a Chinese food place there. When I was in high school ('99-'03), each of the three high schools would steal it for homecoming. Have no idea why.

The Blue Hippo

A large blue hippo was moved around as a joke by local school kids until finding a permanent home in its current location. No one is quite sure who made him or when he was made.

The hippo -- Edmond's answer to the Blue Whale in Catoosa -- has been sitting in this spot since at least 2007. In his hands he holds what was originally a camera. He was repainted in 2020, and several times before that.
