Big Frying Pan... Long Beach, WA

The "World's Largest Frying Pan" in Long Beach, Washington is a remnant of the town's Clam Festival. It was forged in 1941 by command of the Long Beach C of C. It is 9 ft., 6 in. in diameter, and has since been surpassed by other towns with more ambitious plans and pans.

No longer operational, Long Beach's frying pan serves as a nice photo backdrop for families who couldn't get a decent picture in front of the Alligator Man across the street at Marsh's Free Museum.
