Beware of Giant Troll Under Bridge

Of course, no one expects to find giant trolls under bridges. However,in the Freemont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington under the Aurora Bridge you can find a giant eighteen-foot one-eyed troll holding on to a Volkswagen Bug. You do not have to worry about this troll eating you or your children because this is the imaginative artwork of a group of local artists who created it in 1990.

The group sculpted the troll as part of a competition to promote urban renewal. The local residents loved this troll and it found a permanent home under the bridge. The troll gets its share of love every Halloween when the community pay tribute to it as part of a mobile “Troll-o-ween” party that takes off right under the bridge and includes other sites and event that have to do with art all over the neighborhood.
