As road trippers, we often come to a fork in the road and have to choose which path to take…or, we may come to a giant fork in the road and stop the car to take photos! That’s what I did when I got to this roadside attraction: the World’s Largest Fork in Springfield, Missouri.
Located in the parking lot of Springfield’s Noble & Associates marketing agency this 35-foot tall, 11-ton utensil is the biggest fork in the world! It used to reside outside of a restaurant, but relocated to the current position when that location closed (because what company wouldn’t want to take in a giant fork and display it in their parking lot?!?!? I mean, come on!) While it may seem out of place to have a giant fork in your marketing agency’s parking lot, for Noble & Associates, it’s not: this marketing company is focused on food and has a full roster of restaurant and manufacturing clients.
Now, where are the matching spoon and knife?
