Seaside Heights Boardwalk Statues

In the boardwalk town of Seaside Heights there is an unusually large amount of fiberglass figures at its many arcade bars, restaurants, gift shops, and theme parks. Some of the ones I could find were a hobo, the Blues Brothers, a Happy Halfwit Muffler Man, a giraffe, many other zoo animals in a mini-golf course, Marilyn Monroe, Betty Boop, giant scoops of ice cream, Scandinavian swordsmen, Paul Bunyan, a chicken with a Coke, the Budweiser Man, Super Mouse, and a cool bear. I recommend walking around and trying to find as many as you can.

Most statues are common, mass-produced figures. Seaside Heights has enough to push the Jersey shore boardwalk tackiness needle. And that rooftop ice cream sundae is quite a thing.
