On my road trip from Seattle to Hyder, Alaska we stumbled upon this Big Rooster in Nooksack, Washington. And, let me tell you, this Washington roadside attraction rules the roost!
The fiberglass rooster once advertised a restaurant named Dunny’s in Everson. When I visited in 2009 it showcased a family Mexican Restaurant called Mexico Tipico. Today, both restaurants have since closed and it stands on top of a sign for Evernook Dentistry.
The giant rooster roadside attraction was most likely made in the 1960s by International Fiberglass (a Venice, California company most well known for making muffler men). It stands around eight feet tall and weighs 100 pounds. Hos body and tail are painted white and he has blue eyes, a yellow-orange beak and legs and a red comb and waddles.
The giant fowl made for a popular roadside character, so you can find tourist attractions made from the same mold throughout the US. (You can learn more about them here.)
This big bird is Cock-A-Doodle-Do-See on your next Washington road trip!
